Firefighters battle to contain wildfire just outside Sydney
Firefighters are working hard to contain a wildfire that is burning just on the outskirts of Syndey, Australia. They are warning people to stay in their homes for now, but the fire has already consumed some cars and sheds, but no homes.
The fire burned 37 acres (15 hectares) by Thursday evening, and around 150 firefighters were dispatched to fight the blaze. No injuries were reported.
Wildfires are a regular feature of Australia's hot summer months.
Temperatures have reached over 40 degrees in the last few days; making it a climate that is ideal for fires to grow and spread.
