Australia — Fire authorities say a bushfire at Port Lincoln in South Australia before Christmas has reignited and is burning underground in vegetation roots.

Two fire crews are trying to put out the blaze in New West Road.

The Metropolitan Fire Service (MFS) says it is causing parts of a riverbank to collapse.

Residents had reported seeing a big volume of smoke coming from underground.

The MFS says people need to keep clear of the area as there could be a further collapse.
