KATHMANDU: The Australian government has issued catastrophic fire warnings across the Australian state of New South Wales where firefighters are tackling more than 100 blazes, BBC reported.

Meanwhile, authorities have urged Christmas travelers to delay their journeys as the bushfire is creating mayhem.

Rising temperatures compounded by strong winds are expected to worsen fires across three states on Saturday.

Three blazes around Sydney are burning at emergency level.

“We are asking everybody not to travel on roads anywhere near the vicinity of an active fire unless you absolutely have to,” Gladys Berejiklian, premier of NSW, said at a news conference.

A combination of temperatures above 40C, low humidity and strong winds have worsened the struggle for the almost 10,000 emergency personnel mobilized to deal with the bushfires in NSW.

Two volunteer firefighters succumbed to blazes on Thursday while they were tackling a large blaze near Sydney.
