  1. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.9news.com.au/national/australia-bushfires-nsw-firefighters-shield-inside-truck-emergency-nowra-news/7b6f0a4f-aa61-4a12-b745-45c25c4d99c1) reduced by 60%. (I’m a bot)

    > A Fire and Rescue NSW crew has been forced to shield themselves inside their truck while passing through a bushfire emergency zone on the state's South Coast that encircled their vehicle within seconds.

    > In footage taken from inside the vehicle, rapidly-moving embers can be seen blowing all around the truck as it drives along the eerily glowing-red fire front.

    > The crew is then instructed to put a protective flame-resistant mat up against their windows to stop any embers or fire entering the inside of the truck's cabin.
