Shocking footage from Australia shows burning bushfires tumbling down a mountainside like a waterfall.
Justin Hunter was flying a drone around Govetts Leap, Australia, on 19 December when he captured part of the biggest ever blaze to hit the country.
Around 3 million hectares (7.4 million acres) of land has been burnt nationwide during a torrid bushfire season.
At least nine people have been killed and around 1,000 homes destroyed by the devastating blaze
Flying at a safe distance of 600 metres away, Mr Hunter’s drone caught the flames as they tumbled from the summit all the way down the cliff face.
And even with excess smoke rising into the sky, the fire can be seen igniting trees on the ground at the foot of the cliff.
Mr Hunter said: “This is part of the biggest bush fire ever to hit Australia.If you are told to evacuate, just do it!”
Australia’s most populous state, New South Wales, has declared a state of emergency as the country experiences the most devastating bushfires in its history.
The country has also seen record-breaking heat, with temperatures reaching 47C (115F).
In South Australia, authorities said 23 firefighters and several police have suffered as more than 40,000 hectares (98,842 acres) of land and more than 86 homes were burnt away.
On Tuesday, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said that federal public servants who volunteer with state rural fire services to battle the blazes will get 20 days of paid leave on top of their regular annual and sick leave.
Mr Morrison told reporters in South Australia: “With bushfire seasons starting earlier, one of the things I’ve heard on the ground is that some people are dipping into their other leave entitlements to stay out there battling blazes.
“Today’s announcement is about ensuring our volunteer firefighters can keep focused on the job at hand.”
