The NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) confirms that a NSW RFS volunteer firefighter has died this evening near Jingellic. A further two firefighters on the same truck have suffered burns and are being conveyed to hospital. The firefighters were working on the Green Valley, Talmalmo Fire, approximately 70km east of Albury when it’s believed that the truck rolled when hit by extreme winds associated with the fire. A second vehicle working in the same area was also blown over and the firefighter on board has been transported to hospital. The Service’s thoughts are with all the firefighter’s families, friends and fellow brigade members. Further information will be provided in due course.
