Early in the bushfire season, the town of Mongarlowe was encircled by flames and cut off from outside support.  The town was facing encroaching fires so vast and severe, that in any other circumstance support teams of extra fire trucks and crews, emergency services and much more would have been sent to aid the town - but in this season of fires, there was no extra support to give. So the town spawned a grassroots firefighting collective to assist the local Rural Fire Services Brigade - the Mongarlowe Mosquito Army.
