Western Australia bushfire out of control


At least 20 houses have been destroyed and several town and villages have been evacuated following a bushfire in south-west Australia.

The fire, which started as a controlled forest-burn lit by firefighters, has swept through the town of Prevelly, in the Margaret River wine region, about 280 km (175 miles) south of Perth.
