Homes lost in South Australia bushfires
Warnings for four major fires burning throughout South Australia have been downgraded but authorities warn the threat is still very real.
A drop in temperatures and a wind change helped firefighters contain the blazes overnight Friday.
However, more property has been destroyed with two homes lost to a blaze at Bangor in the southern Flinders Ranges.
The SA Country Fire Service (CFS) says other structures have also been destroyed and there has been multiple stock losses.
The Bangor fire, which has burnt through 22,000 hectares, continues to burn through scrubland.
About 100 firefighters were battling the bushfire overnight.
Two homes have also been lost in the Billiatt Conservation Park fire, which is burning in a northerly direction east of Adelaide.
The threat of fire in the Eden Valley, northeast of Adelaide, has reduced, a CFS spokeswoman said.
She said the fire, which has burnt over 27,000ha, has destroyed a number of homes.
An assessment team would be sent to the area on Saturday to confirm exactly how many properties had been lost.
Firefighters are focusing on property protection at a complex of bushfires burning in the state's Riverland.
A watch and act alert is also in place for the blaze.
The CFS spokeswoman said a band of lightning that swept through the state on Friday night also started more fires.
But accompanying rain helped firefighters extinguish the fires.
Despite the four major bushfires being downgraded overnight, the CFS warns the threat is still ''very real''.
''There is still active fire at all of these fires and there is constant change in the situation,'' the spokeswoman said.
"We are still advising people they need to be aware of the situation.''Across the state there are still 18 ongoing fires.
