The Kenmore Park fire was first reported on Thursday and is now burning an space of about 125,000 hectares (483 sq. miles), in response to Alison Martin with the South Australian Country Fire Service.
That’s considerably bigger than Singapore and New York, which have land areas of 70,920 hectares (274 sq. miles and 78,300 hectares (303 sq. miles), respectively.
Some components of the fire, which has so far torched largely scrub and pastoral land, have been contained and no constructions have been broken, Martin mentioned. Despite the size of the fire, it at the moment presents no hazard to the local people.
