Since September, the unprecedented bushfires in Australia have burned more than 17.9 million acres (7.3 million hectares) across its six states — an area larger than Massachusetts and New Hampshire combined. As of January 20, the fires have claimed the lives of at least 28 people, killed more than a billion animals and damaged or destroyed more than 3,000 homes.
