Weather presenter Magdalena Rose spoke to ITV Daybreak live from Sydney about the wildfires currently burning through Australia.
She called it one of the most 'widespread and persistent heatwaves in history' with the highest temperature reaching 43 degrees celsius.
She added that some fires have even been started deliberately, with three teens in New South Wales being charged over allegedly starting fires.
A huge wildfire has swept through the Warrumbungle National Park in Australia's New South Wales.
An Australian family made a dramatic escape from the wildfires by jumping into the sea and clinging onto a jetty for three hours.
