Wildfires – Australia
Life-threatening bushfires in Western Australia’s south have destroyed at least one home and buildings at a holiday-stay farm. An emergency warning was issued for parts of Napier, Redmond and Marbelup in the City of Albany on Thursday night and also for Elleker on Friday afternoon.
More than 50 bushfires have torn through the region since Thursday, including at Stirling Range National Park, where over 17,800 hectares have been burnt.
The two most dangerous bushfires had burnt through about 4300 hectares by Friday afternoon and more strong winds are expected.
