Hundreds of firefighters are battling bushfires in Southeast Australia.
The fires, which occur every year have been particularly bad this year as the country experiences one of it’s hottest summers on record.
Hot and windy weather conditions have led to unpredictable spreading of the fires, making it difficult for firefighters to contain them.
In just under a week, 38 different fires have been reported, and emergency notices have been given for the communities of Dargo and Licola.
