Australia Wildfires

Out of controll flames from a bushfire in the Bunyip Sate Forest near the townbship of Tonimbuk, 125 kilometres west of Melbourne Saturday,Feb. 7, 2009. 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, with conditions said to be the worst since the Ash Wednesday wildfires of 1983, which killed 75 people and razed 2,500 homes.
