Dozens of homes and businesses are believed to have been destroyed by a massive bushfire in Western Australia.
Accounts from residents say most buildings in the town of Yarloop, south of Perth, were destroyed in the blaze.
Wind gusts of up to 60km/h (37 m/ph) fanned the blaze, dubbed the Waroona fire, with flames reportedly reaching heights of 50m.
Local politician Murray Cowper told the BBC that the loss of property was "significant".
