New South Wales Rural Fire Service Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons has warned that the state’s bushfire situation remains critical, after the ‘catastrophic’ fire danger alert on 12 November. More than 130 fires are still burning across NSW and Queensland, with a number of homes having been damaged or destroyed, while the fires have burnt more than a million hectares of land. Fitzsimmons says the fire risk will remain high during the coming summer due to factors such as the drought and high temperatures.
