Australian fire crews are continuing to battle more than 100 wildfires in the state of New South Wales.
As extreme hot weather in the day has been hampering the operation to tackle the fires, efforts have also been increased overnight.
George Hancock of the Rural Fire Service said: "It's quite a dangerous time of the night but a very effective time of the night too that we can carry out a lot of this type of work".
Firefighters have also said they are confident they can stop a bushfire reaching a former military range scattered with unexploded bombs, the Australia Broadcasting Corporation reports.
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.
