Australia bushfires: Navy begins evacuating thousands trapped in coastal town

The Australian navy has begun evacuating people trapped in the fire-ravaged town of Mallacoota on the Victoria coast, which has been cut off for days by wildfires, forcing as many as 4,000 residents and tourists to shelter on beaches. By Thursday night, 963 had signed up for Friday’s naval evacuations. The evacuees will sail to Port Welshpool - a 16-hour voyage down the Victoria coast.

Why isn't the government doing everything it can? I guess vacations in Hawaii are more important.
