AUATRALIA Prime Minister Scott Morrison has been criticised and heckled as he visits a town ravaged by fire.

He had to cut short a visit to Cobargo in New South Wales (NSW) which has been ravaged by fire after angry locals heckled him over the government’s response.

Locals said he had done very little to help Cobargo where two people died earlier this week and many lost their homes.

Morrison said he was “not surprised people are feeling very raw”.

NSW’s premier has declared a week-long state of emergency in response to the escalating bushfire threat.

Since September, bushfires have killed 18 people and destroyed more than 1,200 homes across NSW and neighbouring Victoria, the BBC is reporting.

At least 17 people remain missing after fires this week alone the BBC stated.
