---> It all started with some lighting strikes, but the record breaking temperature , the drought and global warmings created the ideal conditions for the fires to spread rapidly .
》This extreme weather event was a huge loss to the Australians : The burned erea was about 18.636.079 hectares which represents 20% of the Australian forests . More than 3.500 homes and 5.852 outbuildings were totally destroyed. It also caused the death of 1.25 billion animals of different kinds and 451 people, including 34 direct deaths and 417 due to the smoke inhalation.
