This week`s rain will ease the fire and provide much-needed relief to firefighters fighting on the new state`s front lines and trying to strengthen fire lines across the region.

But air quality in many parts of Sydney was again at risk on Monday.

The state`s fire service, known as rfs`speaker bradstreet, said Monday and this week`s forest fires were expected to ease with the rain.

"We want rain everywhere," Bradstreet told the Australian Associated Press on Monday.

Parts of central New State and the North Coast are expected on Monday, and much of New State is expected to see thunderstorms and showers on Thursday, with 25 millimetres of rain expected in parts of the South Coast.

But Bradstreet also warned that thunderstorm weather could pose a risk of tree collapse and landslides.

He also said firefighters would take advantage of the forest fires to ease the conditions, establishing and strengthening control lines in some 40 unchecked fires in the new state.

As of Sunday night, there were 111 forest fires in the new state, many of which will take some time to get full control.

Air quality in much of the new state, including Sydney, on Monday was poor due to smoke from forest fires. Air quality in Sydney`s north-west, south-west, Illawarra, Albury and Wagga Wagga Wagga are at risk.

Firefighters finally managed to contain the forest fire in Gospers Mountain yesterday. It`s one of the most destructive forest fires in Australia and has been burning in Sydney`s north-west for two and a half months.

RFS Hawkesbury`s Facebook (fb) homepage says:" After the lightning sparked the forest fire on October 26, Lithgow, Hawkesbury, Hunter Valley, Cudgegong, Blue Mountain and Central Coastal local government jurisdictions had more than 512,000 hectares of fire."

"Given that the forest fire season is still a few months away and that some woodlands are not on fire, it is important not to take it lightly. "

Weather conditions improve in Virginia The forest fire situation is still grim 

Weather conditions in eastern Virginia are also moving in favour of firefighters. Forest fire emergency warning levels at Abbeyard in the state`s highlands and Timboon in East Gippsland all dropped at 9am on Monday morning,

The more pleasant weather is expected in the state this week, with rain in eastern Virginia on Wednesday and expected to last at least until Saturday.

Nevertheless, the expected high temperatures of around 30°C and high winds mean that the forest fire crisis has yet to ease.

"The forest fire hasn`t been put out yet, and it won`t go out until it`s extinguished itself or we can rely on a heavy rain to help," said Gov. Daniel Andrews of Virginia in a radio interview today. "

There are also 19 active forest fires in the state, including the Corryong forest fires in the northeastern part of the state last weekend and the New State`s Forest Fire "division."

Virginia now has more than 1.3 million hectares of fire, with 1,500 firefighters fighting on the front line. To date, hundreds of homes and other buildings have been burned and four people have been killed.

The state`s air quality is poor or very poor due to forest fires, with smoke in the east and northwest of the state in the middle.

Life - saving disaster! Australia allocates 50 million rescue plants 

At a time of unprecedented forest fires in Australia, wildlife and environmental groups will receive an A $50 million grant from government, including 25 million for emergency interventions, and 25 million for frontline environmental groups, such as Greening Australia, up to A $5 million for vegetation restoration and up to A $3 million for zoos to treat affected animals.

The money will be channelled by Australia`s treat species commissioner, Sally Box, and she will work with the team to implement the species recovery program, AP reported.

The main priorities of Australia`s government are said to be to relocate injured wildlife, to exercise quantitative control over wild predators, to identify affected areas, and to use over-the-top areas to protect animals.

Treasury Secretary Josh Frydenberg described the forest fire as an ecological disaster. He told Sky News earlier that more than 8 million hectares of land had gone over so far, with an estimated 1 billion animals dead.

Susan Ley of Environment minister points out that it is too early to confirm the extent of the catastrophic forest fires, which have created historic environmental challenges.

In the meantime, autharies sent planes to "drop" thousands of kilograms of carrots and sweet potatoes to help small kangaroos in the new state`s forest fire-hit areas.

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) Victoria has also sent animal care mobility teams to help injured wildlife, including animals evacuated from Malacoota in the forest fire siege.

RSPCA South Australia has temporarily converted a wildlife shelter into a treatment centre to rescue injured animals on Kangaroo Island.

Up to 80 animals are also rescued every day in kunzhou, where government had earlier announced a $250000 allowance for wildlife carers.

More than 13,000 livestock data from the new state continue to rise

The new state forest fires have already caused 13,000 livestock deaths, and data are expected to rise further as farmers count losses.

The state`s agriculture chief, Adam Marshall, noted that farmers and animals in the state`s south were hardest hit during this year`s bushfire season, with more than 12,000 livestock dead since Christmas.

"Data are expected to continue climbing in the coming days," he said in a statement Monday. That`s absolutely disastrous for producers and the new state agricultural leper. "

Employees of the New State Department of Basic Industries and the Local Land Services are conducting assessments of livestock in forest-fire-affected areas and carrying out exhumations.

"Livestock assessment and burial is a difficult task, but this is one of the ways we can support landowners in times of crisis," Mr. Marshall said. "

In addition, autharies distributed more than 1.05 tons of feed to farmers. More than 16,000 landowners in the new state are estimated to have been affected by forest fires.
