    Extremely high temperatures in Australia, reaching up to 41 C (107 F) caused massive fires that have killed at least 17 people and up to half a billion animals, devastating 3 million hectares across the country.

    A magpie in Australia started mimicking fire engine sirens, as rescue services are struggling to put out immense bushfires, ravaging the country. A viral video made in Newcastle, New South Wales, shows a magpie, repeating the sound of sirens as the bird had heard them a lot during the recent disasters.
