"We all agreed we'd rather lose our homes than one of our firies."
Elands resident Kath Palmer evacuated her home on Friday and has been staying with friends in Wingham ever since.
She has no idea what will become of her home this week as out of control fires wreak havoc across the region.
Kath, like many in the area is living each day as it comes. Displaced and anxious and doing her best to keep positive.
She knows most of the firefighters working tirelessly to save her home.
"It's out of our hands, we'll just have to bloody well deal with what happens," she said.
When Kath was evacuated on Friday she believes she was one of the last to travel through Bobin before the road was cut off and fire ravaged the village.
Fire swept through the tiny town on Friday with such ferocity it shocked even the RFS crews tasked to defend the town.
Pacific Palms Rural Fire Brigade arrived in Bobin at around 4pm on Friday to find what they described as a town destroyed.
"A furious fire had ripped through the town like none of us has seen, and continued to make its way through properties in front of us," they posted on their Facebook page.
The close-knit community has been devastated by the loss of numerous homes and its much loved primary school.
It is thought more than 10 homes have been destroyed and all that remains of the school is the library.
The fire started in the Tapin Tops National Park and has burnt more than 19,000 hectares.
As well as Bobin, the areas of Warrawillah, Mooral Creek, Caparra, Marlee, Kippax and Elands have all been under threat or impacted in some way.
Residents in Wingham, Killabakh, Lansdowne and Upper Dingo have also been urged to monitor conditions.
The wider community, cut-off from Bobin, has rallied to help those families who have lost their homes and all their belongings.
A GoFundMe page - Build Bobin Back - has been set up as well as individual fundraisers for families and individuals made homeless by the fire.
