Fast-moving wildfires on Christmas Day destroyed more than 100 homes in southern Australia. Now, residents and officials in Victoria State are beginning to assess the scale of the damage as firefighters work to contain the still-raging fires...

The fire is not yet under control, ABC reported. ""It's been an exceptionally dry year with the El Nino event, and the worst fire conditions will probably be seen in January and February, and that's why we're working really hard to consolidate this fire now," firefighter Mark Gunning told ABC.
