No need to flee from this

NSW farmers are reported to have fled their properties because a grass fire was approaching them

This was sparsely vegetated terrain. 
If you have done any kind of vegetation management around your buildings
 and wear protective clothing 
you should have no trouble defending your property from a grass fire. 
In the circumstances of grass fire in sparse, open country, 
why would anyone go off and leave undefended homes, 
animals and crops to probable destruction? 

Is it because of so much official stress on ‘everybody out’ 
in severe conditions 
that they fee from any threat? 
Or have Australians just lost their fighting spirit?

The Complete Bushfire Safety Book and Essential Bushfire Safety Tips
have everything there is to know about saving lives and homes from bushfires.
