Brush fires have been raging through large swathes of Australia. Over 72,000 square miles of land have burned, particularly in the states of Victoria and New South Wales, but including South Australia, Queensland, Western Australia, Tasmania, and Northern Territory. Thousands of homes have been destroyed and 28 people killed. Over a billion animals are believed to have perished from the fires as well.

Recent rain storms have helped extinguish some fires, but more than 80 are still burning. Experts warn that the fire season will continue on for months.
