On November 8th, Phyllis lost everything after a severe firestorm with 80km winds behind it destroyed her property in Wytaliba, NSW.

While Phyllis was lucky to escape, her property was incinerated almost instantly, along with everything she owns.

This is all that is left of her home.

The destruction has left Phyllis with virtually nothing except the clothes on her back.

“Aunt Phyllis is a loving soul who appreciated the little things in life and didn’t need much to be happy, but now she has been left with nothing,” her niece, and friend of the station, Kelly Curmi explains.


Local community members are doing everything possible to help save what wildlife are left, leaving food and bringing water from town to help the animals, but unfortunately, it’s not enough.

Phyllis now has to start over from scratch, and needs all the help she can get.
