Posted February. 09, 2009 04:03,   


At least 65 people have died and 640 homes have been destroyed in the worst fire in 25 years in Victoria, a southeastern state of Australia. Damage from bush fires that broke out Saturday will likely continue. A fire engine dispatched to the scene to contain the fire flees to avoid flames at Tonimbuk, 125 kilometers west of Melbourne.
