AUSTRALIA: HOMES DESTROYED BY RAGING GRASS FIRES

At least two homes have been destroyed by an out-of-control grass fire and many more are under threat in Chepstowe, near Ballarat.

More than 120 firefighters have been sent to the area to help local crews tackle the 1000 hectare blaze.

The CFA says the fire could put lives and more homes at risk, and people should put their bushfire survival plans into action.
