Smoke and ash clouds gather over Sydney and much of NSW

With the hottest September week on record recently recorded, Sydney and NSW residents are bracing themselves for a long and difficult bush fire season.

Bushfires Sydney

The eerie colour in the sky above Sydney is the result of a combination of smoke and ash, from fires burning in the Blue Mountains vicinity. Much of NSW is ablaze today and firefighters have a massive task to ensure the safety of homes and residents.

“If we get through with less than 100 homes destroyed today, we have been lucky,” RFS Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons said on Twitter. – See more at: http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/nation/bushfire-menaces-homes-near-lithgow-in-nsw/story-e6frg6nf-1226741566330#sthash.WdR5P3Dd.dpuf
