Flames Crawl Across Cliffs in Bushfire-Ravaged Blue Mountains

An emergency warning was issued for the Grose Valley bushfire around Blackheath in the New South Wales Blue Mountains on December 22 after several homes were destroyed at nearby Lithgow.

In this video, filmed on Saturday, December 21, fire can be seen running across a cliff face in bushland near Blackheath.

The giant Gospers Mountain bushfire spread into the area on December 16 and had burned through more than 12,000 hectares of the Grose Valley area by Sunday afternoon.

The NSW Rural Fire Service said 20 buildings had been destroyed or damaged in the Blue Mountains from the fires on Saturday. Credit: bluemtns_explore via Storyful
