Not all Australian-Swedes made it out

I went to sleep last night thinking about three girls from Marysville. Three girls between the ages of 10 and 14, three girls of Swedish descent, who no longer have a home to live in, who don't have a school to go to, whose parents stayed to fight the fires, three girls who are now orphans......

Who is looking after them? Who is tucking them into bed at night now their whole world has fallen apart? How will they cope in the weeks, the months and the years ahead. My heart goes out to them.

I imagine their father's family were upset to read this incorrect article in SvD.
