    Earlier, a state of emergency was declared in New South Wales, the most densely populated state in Australia. Almost 120 out-of-control forest fires were recorded there, three of which are raging on the outskirts of Sydney.

    In a video that was published on social networks, firefighters are seen collecting  water with a helicopter from an abandoned backyard swimming pool as bushfires continue to tear through Australia's southeast.

    ​According to reports, six have been killed as a result of the raging fires in Australia. The fires have destroyed 680 houses and consumed 12,000 square kilometres of land. The fires led to a menacing increase in air pollution in the country.
