Increased fire danger across parts of NSW


Many parts of NSW are experiencing worse fire conditions than originally forecast.

Higher than forecast temperatures and stronger winds mean a large part of the state are at an increased risk this afternoon.

The area of increased fire danger stretches from the Hunter down the coast and ranges to the Victorian border.

Across southern NSW, areas from the coast to the Riverina are experiencing worsening conditions.

Some of these areas are now experiencing an Extreme Fire Danger Rating. Under these conditions, any fire which starts may be uncontrollable and fast moving.

Bush fire information is available on the NSW RFS website at People in affected areas should also monitor the NSW RFS Facebook and Twitter pages.
