A Campaspe CFA division strike team returned from the Kilmore fires yesterday.
Division co-ordinator Brian Quinn said the team saved several homes and a large emu farm.
He said the toughest part was dragging hoses around the hills outside Kilmore when saving the 300 emus.
The teams worked through the night to put out the fire.
Mr Quinn said it was hard to see the houses in the darkness, but the crew knew where they were located.
‘‘If we hadn’t been deployed to that spot, those houses may not be there,’’ he said.
Rochester, Colbinabbin, Corop, Lockington, Kotta, Bamawm Extension, Tongala, Kyabram, Echuca, Echuca Village, Rushworth, Tooleen, Gunbower. Tennyson, Pine Grove and Wyuna sent members.
Mr Quinn said his strike team was made up of two groups of 50.
