As deadly temperatures so high petrol pumps have seized up and the mercury hitting 49.3 Celsius (120.74 F) in parts of Australia, forty firefighters have come under attack from an out-of-control bushfire that is suspected to have been deliberately lit in central Gippsland.
Thousands of residents in 14 towns are on high alert as hundreds of firefighters and aircraft continue to battle the blaze, which spread from 600 hectares on Friday to 10,000 hectares overnight as strong winds swept in from the south-west with the evening's cool change.
