It's never something that easy to deal with and once again, the scourge of the Australian bushfire has ravaged many of our friends and family in Perth's eastern suburbs.

This morning, Basil, Xav and Jenna spoke with Jessica Blackwell, who sadly lost everything in the fires this week. Everything but her horses, her son and the shed.

That's it.

Jessica lives in Tildan Park, and Jessica confirmed that "...80% of it is gone."

"The fires just went so quickly. We got our horses out quickly, thinking we'd be able to go back so we could help evacuate as many people in Wooroloo as we could, and didn't get to go back to get anything else."


We opened up the lines to our Triple M family and as we expected, the phones lit up with offers of help and donations.

There has been a GoFundMe page set up for Jessica, to help her start the process of getting back on her feet.

We can only imagine what you and your neighbours have gone through Jessica. Stay strong, and stay safe.
