Bushfires in Australia burn nearly 10 million acres land

As per latest estimates, the deadly bushfires in Australia have already burned more than 1000 homes and took the lives of 9 people. It is said that an area bigger than whole Belgium has been already burnt and it has easily surpassed 10 million acres of land. Currently there are almost 100 active fires and barely any indicators of them slowing down. The Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has been criticised for handling this crisis situation carelessly and more for going on a vacation amid all this. This fire is being considered as the most destructive fire Australia ever had.
