According to Space.com, the fires began back in September of 2019 and were brought on by a lengthy and intensifying drought. While bushfires are common in certain areas of Australia, the current bushfires have reached a catastrophic level.
As of today, the fires have killed 24 people and over 500 million animals. In total, more than 15.6 million acres have been burned across the country’s six states. Those states are New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia, and Tasmania.
