Fire threat at Buddhist retreat

FIREFIGHTERS were last night battling to protect 15 homes and a Buddhist retreat from a bushfire about 10km from Kyogle. 

The Rural Fire Service said the fire had destroyed about 100 hectares around Collins Creek and was expected to burn for days. 

Residents were warned to be alert for embers.
