A chicken lover was able to recover his two chickens from his home inside the fire cordon but sadly, his cat is still missing.
Max De Lu couldn't find his cat when he was alerted to evacuate from his home on Thursday, and "didn't have time to wrangle the chickens."
"The unknowingness of it all plus the knowing of the pets still stuck up there somewhere was very stressful," Mr De Lu told 1 NEWS.
"I just had to leave them to their own devices."
Mr De Lu returned to his property this morning and said when he called for his cat, "only the chickens showed up."
