Tasmanian pub stays open to feed firefighters

From Morning Report, 8:46 am on 22 January 2019

People in a small town in Tasmania's Central Plateau have been evacuated as a bush fire spreads through the area. The community of Miena was put on high alert yesterday after the fire became difficult to control. The Tasmanian Fire Service told ABC Hobart there were no residents left in Miena, and that just "firefighters and wombats" remain. But Kaylee Hattinger who works at the Great Lake Hotel in Miena has stayed. She talks to Susie Ferguson.
