Sydney, the most populous state of Australia has been paralyzed by catastrophic fire conditions because of amid soaring temperatures. According to today’s international news headlines in English, even a person dies as wildfire ravaged the country’southeast.
According to new south Wales Rural fire services commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons, “we have a landscape with so much active fire burning, you have a recipe for very serious concern and a very dangerous day.” The high temperature of the place is the reason behind it. The temperature reaches to 47 degree Celsius in the areas in western Sydney. However, it was expected to have cooler air through New South Wales but it also comes with danger in mind that the strong winds can even push fires in several directions dangerously.

Two firefighters died while battling with blazes southwest of Sydney. They were Geoffrey Keaton who was 32 in age and Andrew O’Dwyer who was 36 in age. They both were in a truck convoy southwest of Sydney but suddenly a tress fell on it and caused their vehicle to roll off the road.
New South Wales has been declared as a seven-day state of emergency. This has been done with around 2,000 firefighters battling 100 wildfires. This is considered as the biggest forest fire till today’s date.
According to the latest today’s international news headlines in English, authorities have also confirmed that one person has died and even 15 homes have also been destroyed in south Australia as wildfire ravaged the Adelaide hills. It is just 25 miles or 40-kilo meters away from Adelaide’s state capital.
A person was critically injured while fighting to save his home from the fire.
Then another road crash accident in South Australia takes place which sparked a fire in the Murraylands area which results in the death of a 24-year-old person.
According to news, 23 firefighters and several other police persons have also suffered from injuries.
This burning results in 40,000 hectares across South Australia.
Nothing could be more devastated than this. It is such a real scene of devastation especially for all those people who are living in the Adelaide hills. These are the people who are most affected by this burning.
It was a scene that results in big damage where not just the buildings but as well as vehicles lost. Apart from that, it was a big and significant loss in terms of animals, crops, vineyards, and livestock. Nothing can be a more dangerous situation than this.
However, it is hard to grasp the geographical scale and speed with which the fire spreads. If one wants to know it then the best way is to find it out with the help of the satellite data. NASA operates on a basic program that has been used to identify fires regularly.
The satellite detection has a resolution of 375 square meters and it can be used to detect the fire spread around the wildfire.
Because of this devastation, prime minister Scott Morrison has put under pressure because he received a big criticism because he was on a family vacation in Hawaii during this biggest wildfire crisis. Because of this, he has also apologized for the offense that has been caused to any Australians that have been affected by the terrible bushfires that have been caused because of my taking leave with my family even when there was a crisis these days.
After knowing this, prime minister Scott Morrison cut short his vacations as well as returned home on Saturday night. He is due to visit the new south wales rural fire service headquarters on Sunday.
Several debates had been there where the question is whether the government has taken proper steps on climate change and to store the wildfire or not. As you know Australia is the world’s largest exporters of natural liquefied gas and coal. Protestors have got together to protest against it and they want to have urgent action on climate change. Of course, it is much needed. Climate change has been contributed to the wildfire and it is time to bring a change to prevent any such conditions in the future.
