Does anyone know if Mayford Valley, down King Spur, was burnt out in latest fires?

I have looked into this quite a bit and here is the situation as I understand it.

1)The fire went right through the upper Dargo and all the surrounding areas of Mayford.
2)King Spur amongst others was used as a fire break, it is burned out on the NW side of the track all the way down to the river, and ok on the SE side of the track.
3)According to a Parks ranger that was there last week, the fire stopped on the tree line just above the flat of the valley. In other words the valley was ok but everything surrounding it, especially on the South and West side up from about 50meters has been burned out.
4)The fire was patchy, some parts of the forest are still ok and some were burned bad.
5)I think the old pear tree is ok. Fingers crossed.
6)The track is still closed, as is the High Plains Rd.

This map should give you a good idea. It is the extent as of 26th Feb 2013, after the fires were put out by rain.
