Australian bushfires burnt an estimated 18.6 million hectares (46 million acres; 186,000 square kilometres; 72,000 square miles), destroyed over 5,900 buildings (including 2,779 homes) and killed at least 34 people. An estimated one billion animals have been killed and some endangered species may be driven to extinction.
Amazon rainforest fires led to international concern about their fate, with the Amazon being the world's largest terrestrial carbon dioxide sink, playing a significant role in mitigating global warming.
NASA's AIRS published maps of increased carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide resulting from Amazon's wildfires. On the same day, the European Union's Copernicus Climate Change Service reported a "discernible spike" in emissions of carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide generated by the fires.
