Wildfires – Tasmania

Bushfires in the Australian state of Tasmania endangered houses and property on Wednesday, with visitors urged to be cautious before setting off.

Around 50 blazes have erupted across the state with emergency alerts set off for six areas in the central region and authorities declaring that one house has already been burnt.

Teams have been in efforts to put out the fires for much of the summer, including a huge burn near the Gell River which has so far burned more than 20,000 hectares of wilderness.
