Authorities in the Australian Capital Territory have declared a
state of emergency as massive bushfires rage south of Canberra.
Australian officials say the fire is the worst fire threat to the
territory in nearly two decades.
The main blaze, in the territory's south, is burning over more
than 18,500 hectares.
Residents in suburbs of Canberra have been urged to remain
alert for potential evacuations.
