TWO NORTHERN NSW FIRES LISTED AS WATCH & ACT

There’s increased fire danger across northern parts of New South Wales due to high temperatures and strong winds.

Tenterfield is in the firing line again with a grass fire at Kildare Road burning out-of-control.

The fire is small but authorities say it does have the potential to be dangerous with unfavourable conditions.

Residents have been told to watch and act as necessary.

Further west and a bushfire in Armidale is also listed as out-of-control.

So far, the blaze has burnt through 12 hectares at Carrai Creek.

A total fire ban is in place for people in the far north coast, north coast, Greater Hunter, New England, Northern Slopes and northwestern regions.

The warm weather comes as the Rural Fire Service on Wednesday confirmed 64 homes were lost in bushfires that swept through northern New South Wales last week, with more than 150 out-buildings also destroyed.
