Ominous smoke plumes from this month’s bushfires created a frightening haze across New South Wales, Australia. The blazes consumed swathes of tree groves in the Blue Mountains and destroyed hundreds of rural homes.

Our hearts go out to those impacted by this disaster that has destroyed hundreds of rural homes.
