We want to reopen the schools as soon as possible.
The children who have been forced out of their homes need to return to some kind of normal schedule.
It will be good for them to get back to school and be with their playmates.
The city is more or less surrounded by fires.
The nearest are in the north. They were two fires which merged into one huge fire.
There are also fires coming in 60 miles to the south of the city and 80 miles to the west.
A lot of people are still in shock. You hear of little fires here and there or even one big fire, but it's unusual to have so many major fires.
We don't know what's going to happen next - we're at the mercy of the wind."
