Wildfires – Australia

A large, fast-moving bushfire has steered away from about 60 homes which were under threat on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, but firefighters are yet to bring the blaze under control. Currently, 37 fire crews and four water-bombing aircraft are trying to control the fire. Coolum Surf Club has been opened as an evacuation centre. The fire started in a national park and broke containment lines on Thursday afternoon. The fire burned an area of more than 540ha on Thursday night. Residents have been warned to evacuate or defend their homes.
