What more could wildland firefighters Ryan Heydenrych and Mike Boyd have done?
What were they doing, at around 03:00, in a suburb in which houses were ablaze, gardens were burning, and hedgerows along the street were spontaneously bursting into flame?
What could they have done that a 12,000-litre all-terrain behemoth of a tender capable of speeds exceeding 140 kph could not have done?
Why does Ryan Heydenrych feel this way today?
