  • Rain fell across parts of bushfire-ravaged eastern Australia on Thursday (Jan 16) and more wet weather was forecast, giving some relief following months of catastrophic blazes fuelled by climate change.
  • In the state of New South Wales, where many of the worst fires have burnt, there were “good falls” on some blazes early Thursday, the local meteorology bureau reported.
  • In New South Wales alone, 30 blazes were still burning out of control on Thursday.
