Firefighters Battle Currowan Blaze Through the Night

At least one home was destroyed as the Currowan fire on the New South Wales south coast burned through bushland during the night of Monday, December 2.

The out-of-control fire north of Batemans Bay had been downgraded to a ‘watch and act’ alert on Tuesday after previously triggering emergency warnings for people in surrounding areas.

The Huskisson Rural Fire Brigade said it and other crews had spent December 2 protecting properties around Bawley Point as the fire spread. This video shows firefighters battling the flames that night.

It had burned through nearly 25,000 hectares and destroyed at least one property, according to reports. The fire was one of 56 uncontained bushfires burning around the state, the NSW Rural Fire Service said. Credit: Huskisson Rural Fire Brigade via Storyful
