Australians were urged on Friday to evacuate parts of the eastern states of Victoria and New South Wales.
The call to action is in an effort to help residents escape bushfires that are expected to burn out of control this weekend.
A number of fires are currently burning out of control in South Australia as temperatures top 104 F.
According to Reuters, the flames are further fueled by strong winds and drought conditions.
Victoria has declared a state of disaster across areas home to about 100,000 people.
Authorities have also advised tens of thousands of tourists to leave national parks and vacation areas on the south coast.
Since Monday, wildfires have killed ten people in New South Wales and Victoria, with 28 still missing in Victoria.
