A ‘perfect storm’ of a fire destroys dozens of homes in NSW

  • The massive fire has consumed more than 40,000 hectares near the Warrumbungle National Park in Coonabarabran area in New South Wales (NSW), destroying dozens of homes.
  • The destructive blaze with a 100-km front has also destroyed scores of other structures, hundreds of livestock and farming machinery, and remained uncontained as of  Monday, local reports said.
  • The mega blaze has severely damaged several buildings at Siding Spring Observatory in the national park, but “the main telescope facilities are okay,” said the acting director for the Australian Astronomical Observatory.
  • “There was just absolutely no stopping that fire,” a fire official said, adding that wind conditions had created “perfect storm” conditions for the fire to burn “with such a ferocity we haven’t seen in years.”
  • “It looked like an atom bomb the way it went up,” said a property owner who lives to the west of the fire.
  • “The smoke plume of that fire extended some 14km (8.6 miles) into the air and even prevented us from getting aircraft overhead because of just how dangerous and bumpy the conditions were,” a fire official told reporters.
  • At least 200 wildfires sparked by lightning and fueled by hot and windy weather are burning in NSW.
  • About 3 dozen fires remain uncontained, officials said.
  • Dozens of fires are also burning in Victoria and Tasmania.
