Australia – March 26th, 2013

Multiple blazes fill southeastern Australia’s state of Victoria with plumes of smoke. A total fire ban has been declared across most of the state, with hot northerly winds expected to create uncomfortable conditions also in Melbourne. The bans are for the South West, Wimmera, Mallee, Northern Country, North Central, and Central. No fires can be lit or be allowed to remain alight in the open air for 24 hours.
