At least 50 homes damaged or destroyed, 13 firefighters injured in NSW


(Translation appears in Arabic Section)

Early estimates reveal at least 50 homes have been damaged or destroyed in the past 24 hours in New South Wales, with 83 fires continuing to burn across the state on Wednesday. Firefighters are preparing for another dangerous day after unprecedented conditions wreaked havoc across the state on Tuesday. At least 21 people were injured on Tuesday, 13 of them firefighters, however no injuries were life threatening and no one is unaccounted for. More than 2,000 firefighters battled through the night to protect lives and homes. Temperatures have since dropped and conditions have eased, but a gusty southerly wind change has created a new threat for crews, sending already existing fires in new directions. NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian praised emergency services and volunteers on Wednesday, saying she was hugely relieved to have made it through Tuesday’s 'catastrophic' conditions.
