Canberra: Australia faces increased bushfire risk this summer with hot and dry conditions expected to persist into the new year for many locations, the fire and emergency service authorities said on Thursday.

Abundant vegetation growth supported by previous La Nina rainfall will continue to dry throughout summer, increasing the flammability of fuel loads, the National Council for Fire and Emergency Services (AFAC) said in its Seasonal Bushfire Outlook for summer 2023.

These factors are driving an increased risk of fire for large areas of Queensland, New South Wales and the Northern Territory, as well as locations in Tasmania, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia,reports a news agency.
