Wildfires in Australia have caused the destruction of about 90 homes. Families have been escaping the flames by any and all means. Below one family shows their determination to escape.
These emotive pictures of the children clinging together around their grandmother under a jetty were taken by their grandfather Tim Holmes. This all took place in the Tasmanian town of Dunalley. The family was forced to wait the fire out as it consumed all nearby residences.
