Melbourne is still covered in dangerous smoke while at least 180 strikes continue to burn across Victoria and New South Wales (NSW) despite heavy rainfall in the area.

Forest fires in Australia may last longer despite the colder weather this week, authorities in Victoria said.

About 20 bush fires have yet to be dealt with in NSW, Australia’s most populous state while in Victoria, five fires are placed in the ‘Look and Act’ category, just one notch under the ’emergency’ category.

Minister of Emergency Services and Police, Lisa Neville, said she hoped everything would be resolved, but the fact of the trip was still a long way off.

Melbourne Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton said Australia’s second largest city turned into the ‘worst city in the world’ overnight with cold weather causing more ash and dust to fly.

Australia has faced the worst forest fire in the country’s history, with a fire that started last September and has killed 28 people so far, destroying more than 2,500 homes.
