Wildfires in Fraser Island, Australia are still difficult to control after 7 weeks.

According to the Associated Press, as of the 6th local time, the wildfires in Fraser Island, Queensland, Australia, have lasted for seven weeks and are still difficult to control.

At present, the overfired area has exceeded 800 square kilometers, accounting for almost half of the total area of Fraser Island.

On the 6th, Queensland Fire and Emergency Services reminded islanders and tourists to evacuate immediately.

The head of the department said that a large number of firefighters, vehicles and aircraft have been sent to participate in the fire fighting work, but due to the complex terrain in the area and high temperatures and windy weather, it is very difficult to put out the fire.

It is reported that the wildfire was caused by an illegal campfire.
