New South Wales condition firefighters stated they eventually got top of the turn in their particular fight the massive blaze that burned out of hand into the mountainous area of Gospers, northwest associated with the Sydney suburbs. "The fire behaviour has changed".

Temperatures above 40ºC and strong winds have made it more hard to fight the fires.

Australia's pristine "AAA" sovereign rating is not at "immediate risk" from the fiscal and economic impact of bushfires raging across the country's east coast, S&P said on Monday.

"Slightly creamy and nutty, but they're okay", Stain said. "They're not spew-worthy, so they're pretty good". However, New South Wales Rural Fire Service spokesperson Anthony Bradstreet warned that the rainfall is unlikely to put out all the fires.

Dozens of other fires are yet to be controlled.

Scott Morrison is facing criticism over his government's stand on the issue of fire and climate change. According to experts, this has exacerbated the flames.

It comes as senior Ministers were forced to defend Mr Morrison from bushfire backlash, claiming the community's "expectations changed" on how much the Federal Government should be involved in disaster management, as polls revealed a shocking slump in his popularity. Morrison on Friday rejected a connection between the fires and climate change.

A minority of the fires are deliberately lit, according to state authorities.

"The government's policy is set by the Cabinet".

Opposition Environment and Water spokeswoman Terri Butler said the government had been forced to change its tune due to "furious public reaction" over its handling of climate change.

Since September, Australia's bushfire emergency has destroyed thousands of houses and lots of wildlife.

"There has been a deep scar in the landscape that has been left right across our country", Morrison said. "But like the government, I am aware of the very real scars that will remain for quite a while for those who have been subjected to the trauma of these bushfires".
