A number of people have been detained after NSW fires - in the latest incident, about 11.35am today, a small grass fire broke out in long grass behind Sullivan Street, Worrigee.

Police and fire crews attended and extinguished the blaze. A nine-year-old boy, who was with a group of other children, subsequently made admissions to the lighting the fire with a blowtorch. Due to the child’s age, he was issued a warning under the Young Offenders Act. A total state-wide fire ban remains in place, and has now been extended into tomorrow.
