NSW town disappears in flames of heat-wave

Uarbry fires claim town

Local farmer battles fires on his property in NSW

Fires caused by the extreme heat wave over the weekend have consumed the NSW town of Uarbry leaving around 100 residents homeless. Over 80 fires continue to burn, 23 of them out of control, across Western and Northern NSW. Those areas report the hottest February temperatures on record, while much of Queensland recorded the hottest temperatures ever as the Summer That Will Not End in Our Lifetime settles in. Climate chaos has led to unseasonal flooding in Western Australia with many rivers rising more than four metres in massive rainfall over the weekend.
