Aerial shots show aftermath of Australian bushfires

Aerial footage showed burnt houses, sheds and vehicles. Blackened trees and bushland were also seen where the fire moved through.

"It's obviously an anxious time for people caught up in the emergency, especially given last year's bushfire catastrophe that destroyed 86 homes," Western Australia premier, Mark McGowan told reporters in Perth.

Police Commissioner Chris Dawson appealed for public information while the cause of the fire was being investigated by police.
