Northern Territory Fire Chief Tony Fuller told a news conference on Wednesday evening that they were battling the fire from the air and water bombs, and that firefighters transferred from South Australia were also helping to contain the blaze. According to his statement, the fires in the Barclay area, a thousand kilometers south of Darwin, have already destroyed an area of ​​10,000 square kilometers, and are extending further towards Tennant Creek in the west due to winds reaching a speed of 50 kilometers per hour.

Lines were set up around the small town of 3,000 people to slow the fire’s spread and protect the city, but Fuller said, the fire broke through some of the lines.

The Northern Territory Government declared a state of emergency in Tennant Creek on Tuesday, giving authorities greater powers to deal with potential evacuations. However, according to Fuller, there are no plans to evacuate residents at the moment.
