Was the fire in Australia an accident?
Apparently some of the fires were started deliberately and accidental fires may also have been started. It is difficult to ascertain the cause of most fires, lightning is also a mayor cause for these fires. You must keep in mind that the media will beat up human causes where ever they can because that will attract more attention and viewers and of coarse money for the share holders.
