Fire Fight

More than 200 schools have been closed in Australia because of deadly bushfires. Weather experts say it’s going to get very hot this weekend, and they’re worried a change in the direction of the wind could spread the fires.

More than 3,000 firefighters are still battling the blazes that killed 210 people earlier in February. Thousands of people were also left homeless by the fires; many citizens have left their homes in case the fires burn out of control again.

Volunteer firefighter David Spooner, whose wife and daughter were killed by the earlier fires, says people are right to leave: “After our experience, I'd consider leaving right now, particularly if you live in an area where there is only one road in and out of the place. In a normal bush fire year you do stand a chance but with the conditions now, with all the dry foliage and undergrowth and what not, I'd go, I'd just go. I wouldn't hang around.”
