Homes in danger from blaze in northern New South Wales

Authorities are warning lives and property are under immediate threat as a large bushfire burns out of control near communities in northern New South Wales.

The Rural Fire Service has issued an emergency warning for the large, fast moving blaze near Coonabarabran, which has already destroyed two properties.

Authorities have downgraded the alert for a bushfire near Bundabarina to watch and act, after the blaze earlier jumped containment lines and threatened the town of Collarenabri.
