He was hopeful the firefighters in the helicopter helicopters or on boats would be able to reach many affected areas.

«They haven’t been able to access the areas where the fire is burning, but what we do know for sure is these fires, the bushfires of the past, are not going away,» he said.

«They are going to impact communities in many different ways.»
