Another Fire

Fire was once synonymous with cane.   Before each harvest the sugar cane would be burnt to clear out the vermin, and get rid of all but the precious stalks of cane, allowing the cutters to get in and get a clear if not clean run at their job.

It was filthy, hot, hard work, and the cane cutters were a tough lot.   Nambour was once a sugar town, and it's roots are never far from view.
