Wildfires – Tasmania
Two more homes have been destroyed in the Tasmanian bushfires that have burned for weeks across the state. Hot and windy weather caused blazes to flare on Sunday afternoon, with authorities investigating reports of property loss at the Huon Valley in the south and on the state’s central plateau. Particular areas of concern are homes near the towns of Geeveston and Waterloo, both south of Hobart. Authorities say they’ve received reports of property loss from the southern Riveaux Road and central Great Pine Tier wildfires. A total of eight properties have now been lost to the devastating blazes.
