Morning News: Greater Sydney faces 'catastrophic' fire danger

At least 150 properties have been destroyed and that number is expected to rise.

Parts of NSW face catastrophic bushfire danger into Tuesday after a horror weekend during which bushfires claimed three lives.

Firefighters are battling up to 64 bushfires across NSW including the fire-ravaged north coast where three people died and at least 150 homes were destroyed over the weekend.

Of those, 40 fires remain uncontained and 40 schools around the area have been closed on Monday after a total state fire ban was declared for Monday and Tuesday.
