Australia fires: Heavy rains hit some blaze-hit regions

Heavy rains and thunderstorms have lashed parts of Australia's east coast, dousing some of its fires but bringing a new threat of flooding to some areas.

There have been downpours in the states of Victoria, New South Wales (NSW) and Queensland, which have all been badly hit by the bushfire crisis.

Major roads were closed in Queensland and power cuts were reported in parts of NSW as a result of the weather.

But fire officials said the rain was helping to tackle some of the blazes.

Fires have been raging in Australia since September, killing at least 28 people, destroying thousands of homes and scorching millions of acres of land.
