NSW’s Glen Innes the site of confirmed deaths and missing persons, as 77 bushfires still burn across the east-coast states
• Full report: At least 100 homes destroyed in NSW and Queensland fires
There are about 800 firefighters and support crew from interstate and New Zealand who have come to help fight NSW’s fires.
Today, NSW RFS Building Assessment Teams are heading to fire affected areas to assess property damage, while crews work to clear fallen trees & reopen local roads. We’re trying to get people back to their properties as soon as we can, but it may take some time. #nswrfs #nswfires pic.twitter.com/ggEmYmzacB
We’re also hearing from on the ground that new roads are being closed as fires shift direction. Monitor local broadcasters and please obey the signs.
