Wild Fires

Thousands of people have been left stranded by raging wildfires on the Australian island of Tasmania.

At least 100 homes have been destroyed, as well as a police station and a school in Dunalley, near the island's capital, Hobart.

Much of Australia is experiencing a heatwave with the temperature in Hobart hitting a record 41C.

High winds and drought combined with the heat are causing the wildfires.
