Queensland bushfire conditions expected to worsen as hundreds evacuate

@BBC
In Australia, hundreds of residents of Queensland have evacuated their homes as about 40 bushfires are burning across the state following a heatwave.

The most serious blaze, 450 kilometres north of Brisbane, has destroyed at least two homes, damaged four others and prompted evacuation orders.

The largest bushfire is about 50 kilometres long.

 It has burnt through approximately 11,000 hectares in the Deepwater National Park. Authorities said it began on Saturday and is expected to remain a threat in coming days. Most of the other bushfires are being contained. 

Bushfires also damaged neighbouring New South Wales last week. Both states are currently in the grip of drought.
