LIMBO: Professor Sue Townsend of Tumbarumba speaks at the Royal Commission into National Natural Disaster Arrangements earlier this year.

A Tumbarumba woman who lost her home in the Dunns Road fire is still "stuck in limbo" until spring following delays in the bushfire clean-up. Latest figures show 54 per cent of eligible properties have been cleared in the Snowy Valleys, according to contractor Laing O'Rourke, with 20 more clean-ups expected to be completed this week.
