An intense bushfire blazed through at least 150 hectares in Western Australia’s Forrestdale, near Perth, on February 7, according to reports. Footage filmed February 11 shows the scorched terrain and blackened trees in the aftermath of the fire.
The bushfire was believed to have been caused by a lightning strike and exacerbated by high temperatures and winds, according to reports.
Several schools and neighborhoods in the area were evacuated as firefighters worked to stop the spread, reports said. Credit: Adrian Ward (ThatTelloGuy) via Storyful
