Their main attention is focused on the widespread fires burning in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney, but blazes are also threatening towns in the Southern Highlands, including the small town of Balmoral.

There were also warnings of looting in areas affected by fires, but police have warned of strong penalties for anyone caught.
