A fast-moving massive brush fire, believed to be the work of an arsonist, in the Victoria and New South Wales provinces have left at least 173 dead, with the toll expected to rise as investigators sift through the ruins.  The fires have raged out of control since this weekend, and international teams, including 35 US firefighters, are being flown in to relieve and assist in firefighting.
