Early in the afternoon of 9 February 2014 two separate bushfires raged towards the massive Hazelwood open-pit brown-coal mine in the Latrobe Valley. Twelve hours later the mine caught fire and continued to burn out of control for 45 days. As the air filled with toxic smoke and ash, residents of the Latrobe Valley became ill, afraid - and angry. Up against an unresponsive corporation and an indifferent government, the community turned tragedy and anger into a political fight. Tom Doig reveals the decades of decisions that led to the fire, and gives a gripping and immediate report of one of the worst environmental and public health disasters in Australian history
