HELICOPTER DUMPS WATER ON BUSHFIRE APPROACHING HOMES IN BLUE MOUNTAINS
WEST OF SYDNEY.
A helicopter dumps a load of water on a bushfire approaching homes in
the Blue Mountains suburb of Woodforde west of Sydney January 4, 2002.
Weather conditions have once again caused problems for firefighters
with more than 100 summer bushfires continuing to burn out of control
in Sydney's southern, northern and western suburbs. More than 140
houses and thousands of hectares (acres) have been destroyed, but there
have been no deaths or serious injuries. REUTERS/David Gray REUTERS
