This report from Chana Helio. Everywhere I look right now on the highway, it's just engulfed in this blanket of very, very heavy smoke. It's like someone has painted this whole area with a dust filter. You can hardly see the trees or the houses just opposite me. And it's really, really hard to breathe. It hits you right in the throat. And that's just really been the story of the Australian summer. As these fires continue to burn, people's lives are affected, you know in vast amounts of the land even further away from the fires.
