Bush Fires Put Hundreds of Homes At Risk


Australia is once again under threat from an estimated 60 bush fires. The blazes, all in the Sydney area, are placing hundreds of homes at risk, helped by the high temperatures and strong winds.

New South Wales has been experiencing a drought, which is far from helping the firefighters' attempts to bring the fires under control.

A main motorway has been shut due to poor visibility from a thick layer of smoke. The fires, which took residents by suprise, have killed seven people, and with high temperatures still to come, the outlook is looking grim.
