A section of the Summerland Way in Kyogle – adjoining a furniture and homewares store that burnt down yesterday morning – is likely to remain closed until at least tomorrow.

Kyogle council has issued a demolition order for the section of brick wall that faces the Summerland Way. A council spokesperson said it is at risk of falling onto the southbound lane and council is keeping the road closed until the demolition occurs, either today or tomorrow.

Traffic is being diverted via Anzac Drive and Ettrick Street.
