Australia bushfires

Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban donate $500,000 to fire services, home 'under threat'

The Australian actress, 52, made a brief appearance at a pre-Golden Globes event in Los Angeles on Saturday (US time), looking visibly upset.

Kidman's representative told Us Magazine that the couple are "keeping a close eye" on their rural property, which is "under threat" from the NSW wildfires. 

The Oscar winner refused red carpet interviews, saying she was "so distracted".

"I'm so sorry. I'm so distracted right now with everything that's happening in Australia," she apologised, according to attendees. 

Australia bushfires: 'Most buildings' in tiny town damaged

More than 80 fires - including 20 uncontained - were still burning on Monday following record temperatures.

The Rural Fire Service (RFS) said it was remarkable no lives were lost amid "catastrophic" weekend conditions.

But about nine of 12 buildings in the tiny community of Uarbry had been destroyed, according to locals.

RFS Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons could not confirm that number but said "most buildings" in Uarbry had been razed or damaged.
