Australia is on fire β€” how bad is it? | AFP

The catastrophic Australian bushfires that started in September 2019, have killed at least 26 people, destroyed more than 2,000 homes and scorched some eight million hectares (80,000 square kilometres) — an area the size of Ireland. University of Sydney scientists estimate one billion mammals, birds and reptiles have been killed in the fires.The severe conditions have been fuelled by a prolonged drought and worsened by climate change, with experts warning that such massive blazes were becoming more frequent and intense.
