Dozens of homes ruined in Australia's bushfires

Four serious fires still burning in Victoria had likely been started by lightning strikes about 9pm on Saturday.

After the fire ran east for 5 miles (8 km) from the Bega area to the coast, jumping the Bega River, the wind shifted to come out of the south, slowing the spread.

Tathra local and owner of the BIG4 Holiday Park Greg McKay said he was keeping an eye on the fire out the back of his property, but within moments it was metres away due to a change in the wind direction.

Fire activity has eased but crews are still working to contain it.

After visiting the Bega evacuation centre, Ms McBain said: "The community is already banding together". One firefighter has been treated for a minor injury.

Authorities say 10 to 12 homes have been lost in west Cobden, but the exact number remains unclear.

Residents got their first look Tuesday at the devastation wrought by a bushfire that ravaged a town in Australia, but fears over asbestos and unstable structures mean even those with houses still standing can not move back.

The RFS declared a bushfire emergency in the area just before 4:00pm on Sunday.

In the brief email, that repeated the messages of other bank bosses who wrote to their staff ahead of the royal commission's hearings, Mr Comyn addressed the bank's short comings and pledged to make good.

Warrnambool Incident controller Russell Manning said his team on Monday will try to bring the eastern edge of the fires under control with the help of six fire bombing apparatus and two helicopters.

On Sunday, about 280 firefighters were battling the blazes, with assistance from 29 aircraft.

"I've had feedback from some of our members today, that are seasoned veterans, and they've said this is the hardest fire that they've had to fight, in their memory".

Hundreds and beef and dairy cattle have also died in the blazes, which burnt through 40,000 hectares of land.

"You can visit your street, your neighbourhood, to see for yourself the situation", Mr Reeves says.

"There has been significant stock losses, property losses which are now being assessed and obviously farm sheds", he said. "You just didn't know what was going to happen". "We're not in a position to identify the locations of those".

The towns of Camperdown, Cobden and Timboon are still under threat, with warnings in place for about 50 towns across an area of 160km, from Hamilton to Port Campbell. Earlier in the day, at an evacuation center in Bega, more than 500 people had been anxiously waiting for updates.
