People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it.

Australia heatwave: Unprecedented fire conditions are 'as bad as it gets'
NSW is facing the "worst possible fire conditions" in its history with a "catastrophic" warning in place across large slabs of the state after a heatwave smashed temperature records on Saturday.

Rural Fire Service (RFS) Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons said the situation was as "bad as it gets" and warned it was set to get worse on Sunday when winds are expected to sweep through scorched parts of mid to northern NSW.
...
Commissioner Fitzsimmons said conditions in some parts of NSW could be worse than Victoria's Black Saturday fires, Australia's worst ever fire disaster which claimed 173 lives in 2009....

(And to think the BOM added more colors to the high end of the temperature chart only a couple years ago....)

They will soon need more colors....
