Hundreds of firefighters tackle the blaze in Sydney
Australian authorities suspect the large bushfire that has threatened homes in Sydney was deliberately lit.
The blaze, which began on Saturday, has burnt through about two thousand 500 hectares of land in the city's southern suburbs.
The New South Wales Rural Fire Service (RFS) described the blaze as highly suspicious.
Some residents have been warned of immediate danger to their lives, but firefighters say the threat has eased.
