Parts of Australia are burning and hot temperatures and windy conditions continued to plague New South Wales on Friday.
Fox News has the latest on the Australian wildfires:
The fires, fueled by drought and the country’s hottest and driest year on record, have been raging since September, months earlier than is typical for Australia’s annual wildfire season. So far, the blazes have killed 26 people, destroyed 2,000 homes and scorched an area of about 25.5 million acres, roughly the size of South Korea.
In the New South Wales state, 132 fires were still burning as of early Friday, around 55 of which were uncontrolled.
