Firefighters Continue to Battle Australia Wildfires

The fires have killed one man and destroyed 208 homes.

Cool temperatures, winds and rain Tuesday helped firefighters manage the wildfires that have been burning across Australia.

The Rural Fire Service said, since last week, the fires have killed one man, destroyed 208 homes and damaged another 122 in New South Wales State.

The number of fires burning dropped from more than 100 last week to 60 on Tuesday. The danger of all the fires was downgraded.

Even though the fires seem to be clearing up, Josh Della Vedova, a Sydney resident, said the situation is getting worse.
