FATHER AND SON CONFIRMED DEAD ON NSW SOUTH COAST

A father and son have died in bushfires tearing through the town of Cobargo on the New South Wales south coast.

The bodies of the two men were found in a burnt out house this afternoon, as strong winds and stifling temperatures fanned the flames.

Another person is missing west of Narooma.

Police have described the situation as “tragic.”

More to come.
