Siding Springs Observatory Fire

The New South Wales Rural Fire Service says 12 properties have been lost in a bushfire west of Coonabarabran, which also damaged the Siding Spring Observatory.

The fire in the Warrumbungle National Park has burnt out up to 40,000 hectares and has already forced the evacuation of over 100 residents.

The fire is presently burning in a northerly direction away from Timor Road and is about a kilometre south of Bugaldie.
