Australia bushfires: All New South Wales fires contained

From Morning Report, 6:16 am on 14 February 2020

Some good news from the Australia bushfire crisis - all of the bushfires in New South Wales are now contained for the first time this season.

The New South Wales Rural Fire Service said it was great news after "a very traumatic, exhausting and anxious" time.

Their efforts were assisted by heavy rain, which lashed the state since last weekend and helped extinguish more than 30 fires - some of which had been burning for months.

James Morris is from the New South Wales Rural Fire Service.
