ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION).

STORY: More than 40 cars were destroyed after a grass fire burnt out of control near Sydney Olympic Park on Sunday (October 13), with more than 500 people evacuated from the near by aquatic center, Seven Network reported.

Flames were fueled by warm temperatures and gusty winds. More than 50 firefighters continue to battle to contain the fires.

A t Port Stephens, north of Sydney, people have been evacuated after five homes were destroyed when two large fires swept through the area, local media reported.

The New South Rural Fire Service continues to fight the fires as embers could possible blow several kilometers ahead of the fire creating more blazes, local media said.
