Bush fires in the Australian state of Tasmania have destroyed more than a hundred homes and buildings. Donations for the homeless are pouring into aid centres like this one in nearby Sorell. SOUNDBITE: AID COORDINATOR TAMMY MASON SAYING (English): "Needy families are just walking in who've got absolutely nothing. They're bewildered." Local people have been bringing food, clothing and other supplies to help. SOUNDBITE: UNIDENTIFIED MAN SAYING (English): "Went into the island markets and basically came out with a ute-load there, so everyone's doing pretty good, getting together. The Tassie spirit mate." Police say some people are still unaccounted for. SOUNDBITE: ACTING COMMANDER SCOTT TILYARD, TASMANIA POLICE, SAYING (English): "What we're doing is prioritising those sorts of cases, identifying where those people who still haven't made contact may be." While the worst-hit town of Dunalley takes stock of what's left Tasmania's fire service on Sunday said 20 more bush fires were still burning in isolated areas.
