The New South Wales Rural Fire Service (RFS) have declared a statewide total fire ban for all areas of NSW for Monday 11 and Tuesday 12 November due to dangerous fire conditions.
The total fire ban commenced at midnight last night.
Dangerous fire conditions are forecast for large parts of NSW.
There is already extensive fire activity across the north coast and northern NSW areas. These fires won’t be contained in time.
Under these conditions, these fires will spread quickly and will threaten homes and lives.
These conditions will be as bad, if not worse, than those experienced on Friday as they will be across a much broader area including large population centres like Sydney.
Fire Danger Ratings will be provided this afternoon, based on the latest forecast.
