24-04-2018 07:00

A fire broke out in bushland southwest of Sydney, Australia, and now over 500 firefighters are fighting the bushfire, which has burned through 1,000 hectares of land. The police are investigating what started this fire.

The prime minister of Australia said that while the situation is not getting better, there are ‘outstanding efforts to control this fire’. No one has reported any injuries so far. Suburbs along a river are under emergency warnings if the fire comes closer.

Difficult words: suburb (an outer part of a city where people live).
