Bushfires in Australia destroyed buildings and threatened lives on Saturday as a heatwave in three states brought temperatures strong enough to melt the bitumen on a highway.

A fire raging out of control set several structures ablaze on the outskirts of Melbourne, the country's second largest city, and the capital of the southeastern state of Victoria.

The state's emergency management commissioner, Craig Lapsley, said hot temperatures had combined with dry weather, strong winds and a wind change to create dangerous conditions. "It's exactly what the forecast indicated and when we have fires running that's obviously a problem for us," he told a news conference.

About 400 homes lost power and 50 fires were reported across Victoria on Saturday, although many were small and were extinguished.

Emergency warnings were issued both in Victoria and in the nearby state of South Australia, where authorities advised residents of a rural area to seek shelter in buildings from an out-of-control fire.

Experts consider such a move to be safer than running the risk of getting trapped in the open if the fire suddenly changes direction.

Traditionally #ship #fires have posed many problems for #firefighters, as they result in severe water damage to the cargo and fittings. But a fortuitous set of circumstances and technical knowledge saw the #NSW #FireBrigades demonstrate there was another way to combat ship fires on the evening of 4 October #1969. Firefighters responded to a fire #onboard the #Japanese freighter Rio De Janeiro Maru. #Smoke was issuing from the cargo hold, where 30 cylinders of #Co2 had been discharged from the ship’s fire system. The #Brigade ordered the ships #hatches to remain closed and that a further 20 cylinders of Co2 should be injected into the hold. Deputy #ChiefOfficer Meeve held a conference with the ship’s captain and it was decided that as the fire was contained to the upper level of the hold, that extinguishment using bulk Co2 should be attempted. Five and a half tons of liquid Co2 was injected directly into the hold of the tanker, and the ship was sealed. At 9am the hatches were oped and they found that the fire had been completely #extinguished, and in defiance of tradition, not one drop of water had been discharged onto the fire. This was the first time that bulk liquid Co2 had been used on a fire in Australia.
