VIDEO: Adam Scheweinsberg of New South Wales Tries in Vain to Defend His House from Fire

NSW resident Adam Schweinsberg found himself fighting a loosing battle trying to defend his home in the devastating NSW fires.

Adam Schweinsberg lost his battle with a bushfire that raced up a hill.

He realized that the house was lost when the water pressure was lost and major fire started to show in the middle of the house. He even tried to save fish in a fish tank in a laundry room by protecting one of the last rooms not yet exposed to the fire.

Schweinsberg had just remodeled his kitchen (See interview by ABC News/Australia).

Officials say hundreds of homes may have been lost as New South Wales suffers one of its worst bushfire days in recent memory.
