The dangerous spring blazes have burnt through almost two million hectares in New South Wales and Queensland alone.
Blazes have caused so much damage to homes in the outer suburbs and thick plumes of smoke have blanketed the urban center. A total of 28 people across Australia have died this fire period, including several volunteer firefighters.
Australia has always had bushfires but this season has been a lot worse than normal. The deadliest bushfire disaster of Australia was “Black Saturday” in February 2009, when 180 people died in Victoria.
But there are plenty of brave heroes who rescued animals from burning forests, join fire brigades, volunteer in hospitals 24/7, and shelter harmed animals in their own homes.
