Wildfires

Wildfires – Australia

A fast-moving grass fire that burnt more than 1200 hectares southwest of Melbourne is now under control. Almost 100 firefighters continued to battle the fire near Little River overnight after a late cool change made efforts to contain the blaze easier.

About 19 bushfires had started in Victoria by mid-morning Friday, with the worst in the Little River area, southwest of Melbourne where an evacuation order was issued.
