Firefighters in Australia have captured the moment they drove through out-of-control wildfires in Melbourne.

More than 300 firefighters were still battling the blaze on Monday amid hazardous weather conditions.

The largest fire was burning in Bunyip state park, around 40 miles east of Melbourne, where the blaze grew to 25 miles, destroying three properties in the area.

Hot and strong winds on Monday are expected to hinder efforts to bring the blaze under control in the Bunyip area, where over 900 homes were left without power through the weekend.
