What caused Burning in Australia ?
The bush fire is not new in Australia, It is the tendency of the forests in Australia to Ignite. Because the axis of the Earth is not parallel to the axis of the Sun, so it is shifted 23° . This makes such a condition that , continent of Australia experiences maximum impact from sun. So the climate in Australia is always dry.
This year was the hottest summer,even in spring the weather was dry.Also the rainfall was very less. Driest spring in 120 years was made a record, that is never happened. And it was fueled by Hotwinds, Because of all this conditions the bushes,and the grass was dry.
