Rain has fallen in fire-ravaged parts of Australia and temperatures have dropped – but officials have warned that blazes will “take off” again.

Sooty rain fell down the east coast, from Sydney to Melbourne, with “torrential” rain reported in some parts of New South Wales (NSW).

It’s said that the wildfires have taken the lives of nearly a half a billion animals.

Sunday night officials warned temperatures would rise by Thursday. Adding, huge fires in Victoria and New South Wales could meet to create a larger “mega blaze”.

“There is no room for complacency,” NSW state Premier Gladys Berejiklian stated on Monday.

“This morning it is all about recovery, making sure people who have been displaced have somewhere safe.”
