NSW RFS crews are assisting NPWS, worked to control the Browns Ridge fire which burnt in a remote part of the Blue Mountains.

The Large Air Tankers Boomer and Zeus have both been utilised to drop retardant lines in an effort to limit the size of the fire. There was no threats to properties in the area. The Browns Ridge fire was in the Grose Valley, approximately 9 km North of Faulconbridge.
