At least four people died in bushfires raging out of control in parts of Western Australia, authorities said Wednesday, with a shocked local community lamenting the "day from hell".Several fast-moving blazes, sparked by lightning, were burning around Esperance some 750 kilometres (450 miles) southeast of Perth, with hundreds of firemen working round the clock in searing temperatures to put out the first serious fires ahead of the Australian summer. It is not known if the vehicles crashed or caught fire.Authorities advised local residents of an immediate threat to lives and homes."Black Saturday", the worst firestorm in recent years, devastated southern Victoria in 2009, razing thousands of homes and killing 173 people.
