108 Die in Austrailian Wildfire

In the most deadly wildfire ever reported in Australia's history, 108 people have died as of Monday. This figure is expected to rise as firefighters move further into the fire zone. At least 700 homes were destroyed as well in the Victoria state, located in the southeastern corner of Australia.
One of the hardest hit areas include Marysville, 50 miles north of Melbourne, where 90 percent of the buildings have been destroyed and trees were reported to have exploded in contact with the fire.
