Bushfires cause devastation and force evacuations in east Australia

East Gippsland (Australia) (AFP) – Dangerous fire conditions continue in Australia’s east as firefighters work to contain several blazes in the state of Victoria, with the flames already destroying a home. Firefighters have issued evacuation orders for nine rural neighbourhoods as warm, gusty winds fan the bushfires. About 650 firefighters are battling the flammes across 17,000 hectares, according to the state’s Country Fire Authority.
