    Record temperatures are fuelling the Australian wildfires - with one Sydney suburb hitting 48.9 degrees, the hottest place on the planet yesterday


    Sky News correspondent Tom Cheshire has been in the east Victoria coastal town of Lake Tyers , where most people have evacuated.

    But he spoke to pub owner Tony Carroll, who'd stayed behind to look after his property while his firefighter son is on the frontline.
