The fires occurred during extreme bushfire-weather conditions with temperatures in the high 40s, and resulted in Australia’s highest ever loss of life from a bushfire, 173 people died and 414 were injured as a result of the fires.
As many as 400 individual fires were recorded following the events of the 7th February 2009 and its aftermath, that day has become widely referred to as Black Saturday.
