Trucker stranded between bushfires in Australia

Kennon Murray shared images with Reuters of bushfires rapidly spreading in a mere 20 minute time frame, as he was driving on the Brand Highway towards Red Gully and Regans Ford in Western Australia on Saturday (January 2).

Western Australia saw several "out of control" warnings over the weekend, and has since downgraded to "watch and act" according to the official emergency website.

Total fire bans were declared for Carnamah, Coorow, Dandaragan and Irwin on Monday (January 4).
