Hot weather leads to numerous fires in NSW

Published: 16th October 2007

Firefighters from around NSW responded to bush and grass fires in various parts of the state today. Fires occurred in Tomago, Mt Kembla and Mt Colah which required the F3 and the rail line heading north to be closed, and there were grass fires in western Sydney at Blair Athol and in Campbelltown. The grass fires caused damage to garden sheds, fences and power poles but firefighters prevented any houses being damaged.
