The Australian navy has begun an operation to evacuate hundreds of people trapped in the fire-ravaged town of Mallacoota. The HMAS Choules is expected to take up to 1,000 people. Some 4,000 residents and tourists have been stranded on the beach since Monday night when fires cut roads and engulfed the town, in the state of Victoria. Thousands are fleeing parts of neighbouring New South Wales, where a state of emergency is in force.
