Call to protect oceans from plastic and pollution

A new sign has been installed at Main Beach, Byron Bay, calling for increased awareness and collective action on the issue of marine debris and pollution. 

A Sydney home has been destroyed by fire less than eight hours after firefighters put out another blaze at the same property.

Emergency services extinguished the first fire at the Dulwich Hill home about 5pm on Wednesday, but were called back to another fire shortly after midnight.

While the first fire caused minimal damage, the second completely destroyed the home and damaged another next door, police say.

Early inspections indicated the first was not deliberately lit, while the cause of the second fire is still being investigated.
