Wildfires – Australia
Scores of houses and buildings are feared lost in Victoria’s Great Ocean Rd fire as emergency crews focus on saving lives.
The Country Fire Authority believes between 53 and 60 houses have been lost by the fire threatening to smother much of the Otway Ranges about 200km south west of Melbourne.
The full impact of the fires will not be known until tomorrow with the blaze to burn for days.
The worst affected towns are Separation Creek and Wye River. The fate of Kennett River was unclear tonight.
