NSW bushfires 2013: One year on

It is one year since a devastating bushfire that claimed almost 200 properties in the lower Blue Mountains region in New South Wales.

It is unknown what sparked the blaze, which tore through Springwood and Winmalee on October 17, destroying 193 homes and partially damaging about 200 more.

Hundreds of residents have launched a $200 million class action against Endeavour Energy, alleging that poor tree maintenance by the company was to blame.
