    ———————————
    This horrible bush fire may have started by a human dropping/throwing a cigar on the floor. Sometimes it can be caused on purpose by humans.
    The bush fire also may have been caused by a thunder bolt strike on the trees or grass because whenever a thunder bolt hits the top of a tree or grass it is a high chance it can catch on fire.
    A piece of glass can also start a bushfire. A piece of glass can start a bushfire because when the heat gets over about 25* or 30* the sun beam can face the broken glass then it can heat up causing the glass to set on fire. The fire that is on the piece of glass spreads to the grass and it is possible a whole field can be lit on fire and that could spread to a forest.
    ———————
    The dreadful bushfire could destroy the entire forest. It can destroy a whole land field depending on how big the fire is and how long it will last for. Even if the fire has firemen near by the forest it will still be going and burning down everything that gets in its way. Most importantly the bushfire can burn down the trees that produce us the air we breathe in so when the bushfire has ended and most of the trees have been burnt down the animals who had their homes their and people living near by the bushfire that was once their would have a hard time breathing since they’re not that many trees.
    ———————–
    The bushfires could have a massive impact on humans consedering the humans that lived near that bushfire their homes have a high chance of being destroyed. The same thing can go with animals because their habitat can also get destroyed by the tremondous bushfire. Sometimes humans and animals can get caught in a bushfire and could possibly die. The reason for this is if they’re in a huge bushfire that is building up thick smoke, it is very hard to breathe in and when you cant breathe you will die. It could even make some people homeless because their homes got burnt down by bushfires.

    Good :The bushfire is natures way of having a clean up. The bushfire can clean up all the dead plants and seeds so that the forest can reproduce more plants and trees for us. And it could leave us with a clean field to start over with.
    —————–
    Bad :It clears up all the trees that were there. Which mean the farmers/ people that that plant seeds for trees have to start all over again, The trees can take a very long time to grow which makes the tree population start over again.(Type of town/place of the tree population)

  3. – Describe how this bushfire may have started.
    Bushfires can start by lightning or the sun shining on glass can cause a bushfire.

    – What damage could this bushfire do to the environment?
    The animals will die and the farms cows, sheep and pigs will die too.

    – How could this bushfire affect humans?
    Humans could die or humans could get very badly burnt.

    – Could this bushfire help the environment? Why/Why not?
    I think that when the trees burn down that is a good thing because new trees will grow and it makes more trees for the environment.

  4. From lightning strikes
    It may have started because someone was burning.
    The fires could kill the animals and burn down the tree’s that they live in.
    Humans are affected by bushfires because their house can be burnt down and they will be homeless
    Yes I think some bushfire are good for the environment because it can help regrowth

  5. The bushfire could’ve been started by a smoke, lighter, match, lightning, lawnmower going over a rock, car crash and gas leaks.

    The bushfire could kill animals, air, burn pollute the trees and grass.

    The bushfire could kill livestock, burn people, kill people, burn down homes and destroy cars

    The bushfire is good for the environment because it gets rid of the dry leaves trees and bushes so it has more space to grow healthy stuff.

  6. This terrible fire could’ve started deliberatly by humans. It also could’ve been caused by the sun shining on a peice of glass on a scorching hot day. It also can be caused by an annoying lighting strike that hits a massive tree or the bright green grass, it can spread and make a disgraceful fire. It also could’ve been natures way of cleaning up. It pobably was a natural cause
    It could destroy animals habiatats and homes. It could burn down the trees we need to live. Trees give us oxygen and if we have no oxygen we could faint, pass out or possibly even die! It burns the grass. It pollutes the air and we get sick from smoke. If the air is polluted we cant breath in air that we need. If a tree genarates new air it gets polluted again.
    It could burn down peoples houses, and their houses have their belongings inside. It could kill humans because of the polluted air. The sun gets blocked and we cant see it. It could damage anything that humans have, only if the bushfire spreads more, more and more.
    Yes because it can get rid of the stuff not needed in the ecosystem. If something affects the ecosystem it mucks it all up. But it can also keep the enviroment healthy by getting rid of stuff that nature doesnt recognise.

  7. The Bushfire may have started by a person who thrown 7 smokes or the sun might have reflected on a sharp piece of glass.
    The Bushfire could damage the environment by burning down the animals homes and kill the wild animals.
    The Bushfire may have affected the humans by setting the humans on fire.

  8. – Describe how this bushfire may have started.
    People dropping smokes, lighting it deliberately, doing it with matchers, two rocks banging together and making fires when there camping. People use glass to start fires and when lightning strikes it can make fires.

    – What damage could this bushfire do to the environment?
    Barns the trees down and make lots and lots of smoke and it pollutes the air and it is hard to breathe. The smoke makes day tern night.

    – How could this bushfire affect humans?
    Bearn’s the houses and there animals have no cars because it is too hot in the car. You will get to hot and de hi drat.
    – Could this bushfire help the environment? Why/Why not?
    It is a way to clean the earth and it makes new plants.

  9. I believe that this bushfire was started by a human being. It looks like the grass and all of the trees have being lit on fire because it doesn’t look like a natural fire that will regenerate the trees to clear the area. This disaster has affected the sky and has made it look like 12 o’clock at night in pitch black. It shows that the trees are black and the fire looks as scorching hot as the boiling sun.
    The damage to this environment is completely and utterly extreme. The environment only has 2 colours in this image that show black and furious raging fire which is orange. I would say that whoever has lit this fire must have scared the living daylights out of him or her. They must have being a figurative in that area.
    This could affect people by where they live. The bushfire may have burnt down people’s homes. This could result in a lot of people living on burnt streets and having nothing to eat. People could actually die from the bushfire. I have to say but this looks like the black Saturday because I read online about it.
    This could change the environment because everything has a chance to recharge itself. It will recharge itself.

    Bushfires can burn people’s homes and it could also burn people.
    The bushfires can help the environment because if you burn trees you can plant new trees. It is nature’s way of cleaning the earth.

  12. – Describe how this bushfire may have started. It could possibly made by a person by smoking or was made with a torch. It could have happened from a bit of glass because when the sun shines on glass it creates fires and the glass could be a magnifying glass or it could been a smashed bottle. It is most likely caused by lightning because when lightning hits something it can make a fire. It could be on prepuce.
    – What damage could this bushfire do to the environment? It can burn the trees and destroy nature. Bush fires also make discussing smoke. The dark black smoke can make the day look like mid-night.
