The bushfires in Australia ripped through more than 12 million hectares of land, destroying thousands of homes and killing animals across the country. Estimates say 33 people died as a result of the fires. As of February 13, all bush and grass fires in New South Wales are contained.
Millions of dollars have been donated from individuals and organizations around the world. The Fire Fight benefit concert in Sydney was held on Sunday, featuring acts like Queen and Alice Cooper, and it was a massive success with more than $9.5 million raised.
