Australian Government Asks to Postpone Travel Plans for Christmas Holidays. Massive forest fires are still raging in various federal states in the east and south of the country.
In some areas the temperature rises to 47 degrees Celsius and a strong wind is still fueling the fire.
A total of eight people died in the fires and almost three million hectares of land were destroyed, which is a vast area.
The fire department of New South Wales says that the landscape and weather conditions are a cause for great concern.
