More than 3,000 firefighters in Australia are battling devastating bushfires raging across New South Wales as weather conditions worsen.

 

"This will be as bad as it gets," Rural Fire Service chief Shane Fitzsimmons said, adding there was "real potential for more loss of homes and life".

 

High temperatures, low humidity and strong winds of up to 100 km h are forecast for today.

 

In total, 59 fires are burning across the state, 19 of which are uncontained.
