Australia's two most populous states, New South Wales and Victoria, have had their east coasts devastated by massive out-of-control fires that have destroyed more than 1,500 homes, The Guardian reported.
The NSW Rural Fire Service commissioner, Shane Fitzsimmons, said on Saturday that 148 fires were burning across the state, 12 of which were at emergency warning alert level.
Australian comedian Celeste Barber has also raised over $10 million to date for firefighters battling to save properties and people across New South Wales.
She called for donations to the NSW Rural Fire Service and in less than 24 hours, a staggering $8 million was raised from people all over the world.
