CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — Firefighters battling some of the most destructive wildfires to ever strike Australia's most populous state were focusing on a major blaze near the town of Lithgow that stretched along a 300-kilometer (190-mile) front.

Authorities warned Sunday that high temperatures and winds were likely to maintain heightened fire danger for days.

The fires have killed one man, destroyed a total of 208 homes in New South Wales state and damaged another 122 since Thursday, the Rural Fire Service said.
