SOME HELL  Tammy Holmes and her grandchildren took refuge under a wooden jetty as a wildfire raged near their home in Dunalley, Tasmania, Australia, Jan. 4. “We saw tornadoes of fire just coming towards us,”  prompting the family to find cover, said grandfather Tim Holmes, who snapped this iconic photo thinking the childrens’ mother would never see them again.  They spent nearly three hours in the water; all survived.  No deaths have been reported from the wildfires which have ravaged the country in recent days.  (Photo: Tim Holmes via the Associated Press / Wall Street Journal)
