The brush fires continue to spread wildly in Australia. At least 24 people have so far been killed - including three volunteer firefighters - and more than 6.3 million hectares (63,000 sq km or 15.6 million acres) of bush, forest and parks have been burned. An estimated half billion animals have died. And homes have been lost, leaving people without shelter or belongings.
