At least two homes at Darwin River were destroyed in a blaze, which started on Monday, July 2. Waterbombing aircraft were deployed to control the fire, as seen in this video captured on Monday afternoon by a local resident. Containment lines were established, but authorities expected “dangerous conditions” to continue on Tuesday. A total fire ban across Darwin, Batchelor and Adelaide River had been enforced as winds continued to fan the fire, ABC reported. Credit: Allison Dakin via Storyful
