Bushfires rage as Australia endures heatwave

(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Firefighters battled 25 blazes across the Australian state of Victoria on Sunday (March 3) as a record-breaking heatwave delivered the hottest start to March on record for the southern third of the country.

Video shared with Reuters showed firefighters attempting to control the fierce fires.

The south-eastern state of Victoria was the worst hit, with more than 2,000 firefighters, water-bombing aircraft and volunteers battling blazes on Sunday.

Australia's Bureau of Meteorology said the heatwave, defined as three consecutive days and nights of above-average temperatures, had broken more than a century of records.

Meteorologist, Dean Narramore told Reuters that Tasmania, Australia's southernmost state, reached 39.1 degrees Celsius (102°F) on Saturday (March 2), the hottest in 131 years of records
