Shan and Rob Hutchings pose for a photo with daughters Holly, 17yrs-old and Fern, 9yrs-old on January 9, 2020 in Clifton Creek, Australia. The Hutchings family were evacuated from their home on December 30 as bushfires burned around their property. While their house survived, they lost a shed and were left without electricity, plumbing and water. The family is staying at the Bairnsdale Relief Centre, as with worsening bushfire conditions expected this weekend and the risk of spot fires, it is too dangerous for them to stay on their property. Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has extended the State of Disaster for the next 48 hours as the state remains on high bushfire alert with dangerous weather conditions forecast for Friday. The Bureau of Meteorology has issued an extreme fire danger forecast for the north of the state on Friday, with a severe warning for the Mallee and north-east districts. Three people died in the fires that swept across East Gippsland last week. More than 923,000 hectares have been burnt across Victoria, with hundreds of homes and properties destroyed.
