Sehr krasse Fotos der abartigen Brände in Australien gibt es auf mymodernmet zu sehen …

The state of Victoria in southern Australia has recently been hit with hundreds of bush fires during a record-breaking heatwave with temperatures well above 100°F (38°C). Unfortunately, these fires have proved to be the deadliest in Australian history, with at least 166 deaths reported so far. Most of the fires appear to have been started by lightning, however a few appear to have been arson, and are currently under investigation. Entire towns are being declared crime scenes. Twenty-four fires are still burning, and authorities warn that the death toll will likely rise.
