Austrial Bush Fires (different pics)

Bushfires in Victoria, Australia

 near the township of Tonimbuk, 125 kilometers (78 miles) west of Melbourne.
Walls of flame roared across southeastern Australia, razing scores of homes, forests and farmland in the sunburned country's worst wildfire disaster in a quarter century.

The state of Victoria in southern Australia has recently been hit with hundreds of bush fires during a record-breaking heatwave - temperatures well above 38°C (100°F).
Unfortunately, these fires have proved to be the deadliest in Australian history.
The fires mostly appear to have been started by lightning - however a few appear to have been arson, and are under investigation - entire towns being declared crime scenes.

More than 40 blazes raged across two states as a once-in-a-century heatwave pushed the mercury as high as
46 degrees Celsius (115 Fahrenheit) with fire bans in place across much of the south-east.
