NSW farming communities fighting for fire recovery funds -

View in ParlViewView other Segments

Farming communities in the New South Wales central west are nervous about the future, after a ferocious bushfire swept through the landscape four weeks ago, destroying people's houses, their farms and farm animals.

This is the same local government area that suffered enormous social and financial losses in the Wambelong fire in January 2013.

There are fears that the communities might not get the federal support that they say is essential if they are to recover from this fire.
