Almost the entire state is now officially in Bush Fire Danger Period.

The RFS made the declaration Monday, effective midnight last night.

Anyone wanting to light a fire almost anywhere in NSW, including across the Northern Rivers, will need a permit until further notice.

Eight local government areas are yet to enter the official BFDP: Albury, Berrigan, Federation, Greater Hume, Coolamon, Junee, Lockhart and Wagga Wagga.

Residents in those regions will face fire restrictions from 14 October.
