Australian Firefighters Struggle to Battle Mega Fire Near Sydney

A “mega-fire” raging over a 60km (37 miles) front north-west of Sydney can’t at present be put out, Australian fire authorities revealed. The fire over very nearly 300,000 hectares (1,150 sq m) is only an hour’s drive from the country’s most crowded city.

Individuals who can’t guard their property against moving flames have been told they should leave right away. Since October, bushfires have killed six individuals and destroyed more than 700 homes over Australia.

The severity of these fires so early in the fire season has caused alert, and incited calls for greater action to tackle environmental change.

Fires have raged crosswise over Queensland, Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia, and Tasmania.

A few fires have formed the Gospers Mountain mega-fire, which more than 283,000 ha in size.

On Friday, nine fires had been raised to emergency level warnings, in spite of the fact that these diminished particularly in the midst of break conditions later in the day.

The fires north of Sydney were sending black fumes over the city, causing an increase in medicinal issues.
