Firefighters Drive Through Bushfire on New South Wales's Central Coast

An emergency-level bushfire threatened properties on the Central Coast of New South Wales, on December 6.

Residents in Kulnura and Mangrove Mountain were told to “seek shelter” from the Wrights Creek bushfire as it was “too late to leave.” Firefighters worked to downgrade the blaze from emergency- to advice-level where it remained on December 8.
