A video has been released showing the moment a man drove through the middle of a bushfire in Waroona, south-western Australia. The footage, filmed from the car dashcam, shows the vehicle driving down the road surrounded by the blazing forest inferno on either side.

As embers swirl from the incinerated foliage around them, the agitated occupants of the car can be heard saying: "This is f**ked," and "I'm just waiting for a tree to fall over."

The 20-second clip, was posted to Twitter by website designer Templeman Twells. Around 143 properties, including 128 homes, have been destroyed by the raging bushfires in south-western Australia, according to ABC News, with Liberal MP Murray Cowper warning it could be months before the massive bushfire is extinguished.
