A military training exercise ignited the largest of the wildfires that have ravaged Australia's most populous state over the past week, investigators said Wednesday. More than 100 fires have killed one man and destroyed more than 200 homes in New South Wales state since Thursday. Fire investigators found that a massive fire near the city of Lithgow, west of Sydney, began Oct. 16 at a nearby Defense Department training area, and that the blaze "was started as a result of live ordnance exercises" at the army range, the Rural Fire Service said in a statement.
