Bush­fires ex­plode into life

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS -

THERE was more bush­fire drama yesterday af­ter a blaze jumped over a high­way and headed straight for homes near Drake in north­ern NSW.

The bush­fire, which has razed more than 52,500 hectares, burned out of con­trol again yesterday, the RFS said.

Over­all, the num­ber of outof-con­trol fires is down to two from the 14 un­con­tained bush­fires at 12pm on Fri­day, with fire­fight­ers mak­ing the most of favourable weather con­di­tions.

How­ever warmer and windier con­di­tions are ex­pected again this com­ing week.
