A mate did this a few years ago during a Total Fire Ban and it worked a treat . It was after Xmas and we were up in the VHC during a TFB , we couldn't lite a fire and a mate came up with this brilliant solution . He had some red cellophane from a Chrissy present he had been given in the back of his 60 series and pulled it out , scrunched it up into a ball and put a torch under it then placed a few logs over and around it . It worked brilliantly and gave off the atmosphere of a camp fire which became more and more effective after a few bevies , so if your out bush during a TFB give it a try I'm sure you'll agree its the next best thing when you can't have a fire . :D:D:D:D

Erica Fire Brigade has already put out a quick vid because idiots light these fires and just drive off.the vid they had to put the same fire out twice...
Where do these Knuckle Dragging Neanderthals come from... They should be allowed to confiscate and crush a vehicle if caught and a jail term....

Even better, do that at home with the aircon on. If you put the celophane front of the aircon, it will flutter around. Less alcohol needed for the right effect, withour sweltering or worring that a fire is just over the next range.
