Large plumes of smoke envelop landscape in New South Wales controlled fire

  • 4 years ago
Large clouds of smoke fill the landscape in Nowra, New South Wales as the authorities use a controlled fire to prevent further damage to local infrastructure on December 28.

The filmer explains: "Smoke billows from a fire, dwarfing fire engines in the distance.

"This is a controlled 'backburn', a fire lit in the direction of an uncontrolled fire, in the hope of slowing it and protecting infrastructure nearby.

"The uncontained 'Currawan' fire reached the region a day later."
