The fire service said Wednesday that at one point on Tuesday, 16 fires raged out of control at emergency level simultaneously across New South Wales state.

State Premier Gladys Berejiklian says she was relieved that the destruction on Tuesday had not been worse.

There were no fires burning at emergency level early Wednesday, but rain that would quench the fire danger is not forecast for months.
