The plaque also pays tribute to the emergency services personnel and the community fire unit workers whose efforts ensured that no lives were lost, although nine houses were destroyed (seven in St Georges Parade and two others on the Darling Causeway).

On October 17 2013, a 496 hectare fire ripped through Mount York Road, St Georges Parade and the Darling Causeway destroying as many as a dozen of the more than 20 homes on the street and numerous vehicles.
