A dairy farmer shared an image showing the ‘devil’s face’ coming from the smoke of the bushfires in East Gippsland.
The face apparently came out from the fire smoke out of regional Victoria, according to Craig Calvert, who shared the picture.
The scene was photographed by his friend as blazes ravage the region, including his farm.
In an interview with Sunrise, he said: “I’m not really into hokey pokey spooky stuff but there’s a big devil face right in the fire.”
Mr. Calvert spent long hours defending his farm with his dad where he was hit numerous times with fireballs jumping from trees.
Speaking about the shocking photo, he said: “You won’t believe it. I don’t believe it.”
His house was the only structure left standing in the valley of Dirty Hollow. He said he’s ‘very glad no one got killed’ in the area.
One internet user commented: “I’ve been saying for days that it looks like hell on fire. Scary stuff.”
Another wrote: “That gave me goosebumps all over, it does seem like the work of the devil. I really hope there is some rain soon in the eastern states.”
A third added: “There is nothing supernatural about this disaster, it is 100 percent man made. Climate change is real.”
28 people are missing and one person is confirmed dead after blazes tore through East Gippsland before New Year’s Eve.
Councillor John White, the mayor of East Gippsland Shire, said to Age that he is concerned about the welfare of missing people.
“Are we going to see them walking up the road towards us? I don’t know,” he said.
“That’s a real worry, because that’s potentially people’s lives. You can put up another house, you can build new fences but you can’t bring people back.”
