Hazardous bushfire smoke envelops Sydney

Sydney again woke to another thick blanket of smoke, prompting warnings to avoid unnecessary exposure.

Firefighters across Australia’s east coast were bracing for a fresh wave of fires as temperatures across the country’s most populous state were expected to soar.

More than 100 fires are ablaze in New South Wales  and Victoria states, many of which have been burning for several weeks – including a single blaze that stretches more than 60 km  in a national park north of Sydney.

Conditions were set to worsen on Tuesday as temperatures top 40 degrees Celsius and winds are expected to start picking up, stoking fears that fires could spread to more populated areas.
