Russell Crowe Tweets Photos Showing How Rain Has Helped His Australia Property Heal From Fires

By Wire Service

Actor Russell Crowe’s rural New South Wales property, which was scorched by the massive bushfires that have been burning through Australia, underwent a dramatic transformation after recent heavy rains in the area.

The Academy Award winner tweeted a photo of part of the property taken 10 weeks ago, after the fire tore through it, and the same scene taken again Monday morning.

Crowe has used his massive social media platform to share images of the devastation from the bushfires, which have been burning for months and raise money for volunteer firefighters. Almost 30 people have been killed, and in New South Wales alone more than 3,000 homes have been destroyed or damaged.

Crowe said in November that while he lost a couple of buildings he had been “very lucky.”

This year’s fire season is proving to be one of the worst in Australian history, exacerbated by persistent heat.

Storms that passed through parts of the country have brought some relief, but the situation is still dire.

Significant amounts of flora and fauna unique to Australia have been burned or killed. One group of ecologists estimated that perhaps a billion animals have been affected nationwide. Some towns have been running out of water. Others have gone up in flames completely.
