FIRE UPDATE: Everything you need to know

Fire Status

The Busbys Flat fire has been downgraded to Watch and Act.

The fire at Jackadgery has also been downgraded to Advice.

The fire at Ashby remains under Advice.

A grass fire at Malabugilmah is now being controlled. It has burnt approximately 16 hectares and is under Advice level.

 

Roads

The Gwydir Highway is closed in both directions between Grafton and Glen Innes due to bushfire.

Old Grafton Road and Old Glen Innes Road also remain closed between Glens Creek Road and Mann River, and  Summerland Way is still closed between Leeville and Whiporie due to bushfires.

Motorists are advised to avoid these areas. Motorists who need to travel can use the Pacific Highway, the Bruxner Highway and the New England Highway instead but will need to allow plenty of extra travel time.
