A long and tedious clean-up is ahead for some residents of Bunkers Hill and Mt Mercer, who were caught up in Friday’s massive grassfires.

Fanned by strong gusts the grassfires destroyed at least three homes and a number of outbuildings, with significant stock losses, particularly around Mt Mercer.
