we got (at a guess) 10 mm. That will do me. I declare this fire knocked down.
Rain brings relief for firefighters

Rain has fallen on all of Victoria's major fire fronts, providing some relief for firefighters, who have been battling the blazes for 50 days.

The Tatong fire, near Benalla, still has several hot spots to the south of the main front, but the conditions have allowed crews to launch a head-on assault against the blaze.

The Gippsland fire has not received as much rain, and the wet has made the job of building containment lines more difficult.

In a further boost for residents in the fire zone, Country Fire Authority (CFA) spokesman Chris Crowley says conditions tomorrow will be more moderate than first thought.

"Saturday, rain developing, possibly thunderstorms with temperatures 23 to 32," he said.

"Sunday, rain easing, possibly thunderstorms, 21 to 29 degrees.

"So it's not too bad but we are still concerned about the danger tomorrow and the next day."
