_ATTR Abt 8 Jan 1932 ,Cobar, NSW, Australia  Bushfires
Few Now Burning.
Reports last night from all centres in the
west and south, in which serious bushflres had
been raging, were definitely reassuring.
The Cobar correspondent of the "Herald"
stated that the only fires now burning between
that town and Wilcannia, in the west, were
those on Nillera station, 32 miles down the
Hlllston-road, and Elsinore, 40 miles west of
Cobar. The fires on Tambua and Wilga
Downs had been subdued. In the north,
towards Byrock, an outbreak on Coronga Peak
was still burning fiercely, and spreading to-
wards the adjoining property of Coronga
Downs. Curraweena was still ablaze in
places. Small fires were burning on the large
Paddington estate, and on the adjoining pro-
perties of Belford, Bindi, and Lachlan Downs.
A storm was thieatening at Cobar last night,
and hopes were entertained that rain to-day
would assist to subdue the remaining fires.
All fires within a radius of 30 miles of Bourke
had been extinguished by yesterday morning,
and volunteers had returned to the town.
Both west and east from Menindie all fires
were either out or under control. A report
to Broken Hill police by Sergeant Canning, of
Menindie, stated that about 80 firefighters
were still patrolling the smouldering ruins in
case of further outbreaks. They were mostly
engaged in throwing burning logs back into
the burnt area to prevent them setting light
to new country.
In the south the serious fires of earlier in
the week at Lake Cargelligo were all under
control anr' being rapidly subdued. Minor
outbreaks occurred yesterday at Junee, on
the south-west slopes, and Trundle, on the
Correspondents of the "Herald" at Bourke,
Cobar, Menindie, Wilcannia, and Lake Car-
gelligo state that there have been many ex-
aggerated reports, and that there is no Justi-
fication for alarming statements. Under the
Impression that a large portion of New South
Wales was in serious danger, many people in
Sydney offered their assistance yesterday. The
New Guard stated last night that it had 1000
men in readiness for transport to the scene,
but had been advised by the Mayor of Cobar
that volunteers were not required at the
moment. A suggestion that the naval and
air forces should be mobilised in the bushfire
zones was rejected as impracticable, and would
now appear to have been un
