150 homes destroyed in New South Wales inferno

At least three people are dead, several remain missing and dozens have been injured as wildfires continue to raze Australia's drought-stricken east coast.

Officials also said more than 150 homes have been destroyed.

Around 1,500 firefighters were battling more than 70 fires across Australia's most populous state, New South Wales, with the most intense in the north-east where flames were fanned by strong winds, Rural Fire Service Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons said.
