Residents who have a holiday home in a fire affected area are being urged to make their properties available to house people who need support.

The State Government is willing to pay market rent aswell as the bond.

Minister for Community Services Gareth Ward says unfortunately some people have lost everything and are living in motels, tents and sheds.

Interested people are being asked to contact their local Real Estate agent.
