Record heat brings early start to Australia’s fire season

Posted on Categories Uncategorized

It is not even summer yet in Australia, but record heat and a drought are bringing an early start to the bushfire season down under.

We received an email from an Australian newspaper photographer who said:

Hi , things are pretty dangerous for the state of NSW in Australia this summer , we have had the hottest November and August on record. I work as a photographer for a newspaper in Sydney and specialise in bushfires and I have never seen such a dangerous preseason.

Here are some links to some articles about the fire situation from November 23.
