Any word on how this devastation actually started?

Almost looks like a wasteland, it's just all gone.

Heartbreaking to see. My grandson and his family regularly went there with his family and loved it as they live near by. Fortunately they didn’t lose anything but so many did and the poor animals 😒🦘🐨 πŸ’”πŸ’”

It's truly heartbreaking 😒

Amazing Photos!

We are devastated to hear the tragic news that a NSW volunteer firefighter has died tonight in the line of duty. Three other firefighters were also injured and have been transported to hospital.

Our thoughts are with the firefighter’s families, friends, brigade members and the NSW Rural Fire Service at this most difficult time.

Both on and off the frontline, we stand shoulder to shoulder with our fellow firefighters and emergency services personnel.
