Fires still burning

We heard on the news that the fires are still burning. The circumference- which is if you walked in a big ring around them, is 179 kilometers.
12 houses have been burnt and another 20 are threatened.
Quite a lot of people have fled to emergency shelters and there is a phone number people can ring to get or offer assistance.
Fire info messages being broadcast on the radio and we are listening to one now. Fires are still burning uncontrollably in all directions. These are new warnings as well as the ones from yesterday.
People in some places are also being asked to stay inside so they won't breathe the smoke.
 The weather is cooler and more humid at expected max of 31C today,
Perusing the daily news. 
which means aircraft fighting the fires can take to the air. Also fire crews have come from interstate and thousands more fire fighters can come if called.
Many people are ringing in to offer help.
As for me I am looking at empty food plates. MIAOUW
