Australians are bracing for more fires and extreme temperatures after a week of deadly bushfires.

The Assembly’s National Disaster Recovery Rev. Dr Stephen Robinson says it’s been a very, very difficult time for a lot of people.

“Over 300 houses now destroyed and a lot of other outbuildings and a lot of property and stock loss as well as that."

“A lot of people are out of their homes. There've been quite a few evacuation centres opened - up to 15 or 16 - over the week the total number has been up to 20.”
