“Day turned to night … The sky was on fire,” she captioned the terrigying footage.
Revealing that thankfully, she and Richard, as well as their dogs, had escaped the blazes, the Seven star went on to give thanks to the “brave souls” battling the unprecedented bush fires across Australia.
“A belated HNY to you all. We’ve made it out of the south coast fire zone & I’m feeling very excited for a shower, some electricity & telecommunications,” Armytage wrote.
“More seriously, I’m feeling very thankful for my lot in life & very sad for those who’ve just lost lives, livestock & livelihoods.”
The TV star admitted seeing the extent of the fires firsthand had made her reassess her life, revealing she would be using 2020 to “simplify my life,” with “more love for my loved ones, more kindness, more patience, more healthy living.”
She continued: “Wishing for more rain for our farmers, better management of our environment & good karma for all those brave souls (paid & unpaid) out there fighting these horrendous fires.
“To you & yours, from me & mine, be safe. Be happy & love lots in 2020.”
