A giant bushfire on the edge of Sydney, which has blanketed the city in smoke causing a spike in respiratory illnesses and the cancellation of outdoor sports, will only be extinguished with heavy rains, firefighters said. Thousands of weary firefighters, who have been battling bushfires for a month, were on Saturday fighting nearly 100 blazes in New South Wales state. The mega-fire north of Sydney, Australia’s largest city with a population of 5.5 million people, was created on Friday when several fires merged and was now burning across 335,000 hectares (830,000 acres).
