There's a current warning of asbestos due to the Snooty Fox fire (burnt to ground) just warning anyone local to be careful. More info found here: http://www.vicpolicenews.com.au/more-news/...-in-olinda.html and here: http://www.cfa.vic.gov.au/warnings-restric...1223087696.html

(Though sure if you're in the area you already know ;-P)

How sad! The Snooty Fox was one of the first places we ate at when we arrived in Oz.

How awful! I hope no one was hurt in the blaze, but how sad that such a wonderful place was destroyed. My husband grew up in the Dandenongs.

Oh wow, I grew up there too... Back when it was much less trendy, and all we had for the tourists was Miss Marples...
