    NSW fire victims identified as George Nole and Julie Fletcher

    George Nole and Julie Fletcher were found separately near fire grounds in a burnt-out car near Glen Innes and in a destroyed home in Taree, respectively.


    Two more victims killed in NSW's emergency bushfire crisis have been identified as George Nole and Julie Fletcher.

    Mr Nole's body was found in a car at the Kangawalla fire ground, near Glen Innes, in state's north.

    Ms Fletcher's body was found in burnt-out building at Johns River, north of Taree, yesterday afternoon.

    In tributes posted to Facebook, neighbours and friends described Mr Nole as creative and eccentric.

    Mr Nole was a well-known figure in the Glen Innes community and was often seen cycling around town.

    Peoples in Wytaliba, near where he lived, called him a "true gentleman".

    Authorities have so far confirmed three people died in the fires which have been burning at several locations in the past two days.

    The third fire victim, 69-year-oldVivian Chaplain, had been trying to protect her home at Wytaliba, near Glen Innes.

    It is understood the grandmother-of-six died in hospital on Saturday morning after being found with severe burns.

    The NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS) said this number could rise.

    More to come.
