Hopes of rain that would diminish the severity of New South Wales’s bushfires are lowered on Saturday as dry weather looks set to continue. Around 1,500 firefighters are battling 100 blazes in the state, which are being helped along by dry weather and strong winds. Around 200 properties have been destroyed in the Blue Mountains area.
