Fires continue to blaze over Australia

Huge wildfires continue to burn in Australia during what seems like one of its longest summer seasons yet.

Social media and news outlets have shown the public devastating photos of Australia’s fires, and new fires are blazing each day. Wildfires commonly occur in Australia’s summer season, but this is the hottest and deadliest one yet, with Jessie Yeung of CNN reporting, “over 3,000 homes were burned, there was a spike in temperatures over 110 degrees and air quality measured 11 times over the hazardous level.”

The fires are most prominent in the state of New South Whales, where over 12 million acres burned alone. In total, over 17 million acres have burned across all of Australia.

Families all throughout the area are affected, and are worried the fire will get worse. Australia is still going through the hottest time of its summer season, and probably won’t see a drop in temperatures until late February.
