One dead, at least 100 homes lost in Australia bushfires

AIR PIC
At least one person has died and 100 homes have been destroyed as an unprecedented number of bushfires tore through eastern Australia yesterday. At this stage, it appears at least 100 homes have been destroyed in yesterday's bush fires, the fire service said in an early today.

Two other people are said to be unaccounted for and more than 30 people have been injured, most of them firefighters. Some 100 blazes pockmarked the New South Wales and Queensland countryside, around eight of them remained highly dangerous.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said a large number of fires was incredibly concerning. He urged residents to stay safe and listen to emergency services.

Firefighters had warned they were in uncharted territory as they deployed 1,200 firefighters and 70 aircraft across a roughly 1,000-kilometre stretch of the seaboard.
