Australia: NSW firefighters battle multiple blazes

(Vatican Radio) Australian fire fighters are battling a series of major wildfires in New South Wales, with fears that hundreds of homes may have been destroyed. At least one man has died while trying to protect his home. New South Wales Rural Fire Commissioner, Shane Fitzsimmons praised the work of firefighters. He told reporters, “We've got the best fire fighters in the world.” He explained that the men and women fighting the blazes are members of the community, and have experienced loss themselves. “They absolutely regret that they are not able to save everything,” he said, “the reality is that under these conditions, you simply can’t.” The blazes are continuing to burn on the outskirts of Sydney, despite the easing of temperatures and winds.
