Helicopters have been called in to fight the raging brushfires that have devastated the landscape and several entire towns northwest of Sydney, Australia. And while firefighting helicopters have been making headway, nearly 46 brushfires were still burning across the area over the weekend. Law enforcement officials have, however, arrested a 31-year old man from Killarney Vale and charged him with deliberately setting at least one of the fires. For related news
