Homes continue to be destroyed by bushfires in New South Wales despite conditions remaining below the extreme fire danger level.
The NSW Rural Fire Service has warned against complacency as it confirmed another 44 homes had been destroyed by bushfire since November 8.
This gives you an idea of the size of the Gospers Mountain bush fire, burning in the Hawkesbury, north-west of Sydney. This is the fire which is sending lots of smoke over the Central Coast and northern Sydney. #nswrfs #nswfires pic.twitter.com/4xq8mQtb8f— NSW RFS (@NSWRFS) November 15, 2019
