Firefighters were racing to tame an enormous blaze in southeastern Australia with officials warning it could merge with others to create a "mega-fire" as weather conditions worsen.

Crews have been battling fires that flared in high winds and searing heat across the state of New South Wales last week with more than 200 homes so far destroyed and many others damaged.

While dozens of fires have been contained, 58 were still alight and 14 of them out of control, enveloping Sydney in a thick white smoke haze.
