Yarloop, south of Perth, in Western Australia particularly badly-affected
About 95 homes have been destroyed following out-of-control wildfires in Western Australia.
The blaze has torn through the small rural town of Yarloop, south of Perth - fanned by blustery hot winds.
It is believed the wildfires began after lightning struck on Wednesday.
Locals have described it as a 'fireball' which completely destroyed everything in its path.
