A fire in New South Wales that took place in February has been reported to have destroyed approximately 15 homes. The fire took place in Carwoola, east of Queanbeyan.

The fire occurred on  a hot and windy day and  ended up blackening more than 2500 hectares. Many roads were affected by this blaze and for the safety of  the people, many roads were shut down and blocked.

The result of the fire ended in the injury of two firefighters and the destruction of fifteen homes. The Rural Fire Service reported that 100 new fires began after a band of electrical storms came across New South Wales and that it had an even greater impact in Sydney.
