Australia bushfires kill 14
Feb 07, 2009
At least 14 die as bushfires ravage southeast Australia.
Aircraft dropped water bombs on raging Australian bush fires as a "once in a century" heatwave sparked dozens of blazes across the country. Officials said dozens of fires were blazing across the country's densely populated southeast. One major fire east of Melbourne had burned more than 160 hectares of parkland after jumping containment lines overnight. Police said at least one that hit Sydney's metropolitan area late had been deliberately lit.
