Sydney’s famous landmarks, the Harbor Bridge and Opera House, are barely visible after a blanket of smoke drifted from fires in the Blue Mountains, just outside the city.

Pollution levels rocketed to 15 times above normal and health department officials warned people to take care.

More than 40 wildfires are still burning around New south Wales.
