The fires are really bad, I’m praying for everyone’s safety and for the fires to quickly be quenched.

They are shocking to see, and here in New Zealand our own sky's were red just like a movie set, very surreal.

Vandalism is major deep rooted problem. Of course there are bad people in every town and country but people destroying billions of tax payer's money is very uncommon in other part of the world.  People including fire fighters deliberately lit fire for their own foolishness.( It is much worse in this year due to unusually high background temperature).

Nay, Why would you even bring that up in a post like this.

We are here to share our sorrow and open our hearts to the Aussies, not criticize them for whatever at a time like this. There is a place and time for that Nay, I might be wrong but it probably could of waited till a different post don't you think my friend?

No Disrespect meant by the way, us Kiwi;s can be a bit to forward sometimes, but it always comes from the heart. I am just totally shocked at the4se Fires, and @BattleSoldier you are spot on, there have been an overwhelming amount of animal death, and it is so high I actually think they gave up trying to count and record them all, it was just so overwhelming, how could anyone even cope.

They have stopped doing Back Fires because of the accident they had a day or so ago, when it totally backfired on them no pun intended.

Just so devastating, it will take a while to recover from this, even in Auckland, New Zealand 2 days ago our skies were Red with smoke, it looked like a movie set, it was so surreal and it was nite time all day long.

thanks for yr support guys and gals.

cheers Kev

Wow, being surrounded by raging wildfires...I wonder what that would be like?

The situation is Australia is no where near as serious as the press pretends. The Prime Minister was safe and sound in Hawaii during the worst of it, the Minister in charge of the Environment was comfortable and safe at a conference in Paris, where he was loudly denouncing climate change as a fraud, while the chairman of the largest coal company had access to private jets and a yacht. So no one important was inconvenienced

As long as they didn't decide to hang out in California...

It’s insane, the fires can be seen from space with a naked eye.

Wow! So you bashing an Australian for sharing news about what's going on in their country. SMH! I'm glad they shared. Here in US, the socialist media is blaming in it on climate change as usual.

Thank you drmrboss for sharing real news.

SpiderUnicorn

@drmrboss you better shut up. Otherwise I'm going to charge you for spreading nonsensical conspiracies. 

SpiderUnicorn

For god's sake @MikeDoolzinski, people have died in the fires!

 Millions of animals dead and dumboss is still alive.WHERE'S THE JUSTICE? angry.png

What is this nonsense? How dare you say that @MikeDoolzinski?!

This is a tribute, and should not be turned into an argument!

I commended someone for sharing factual news. You're the one making it an argument.
