  • Two emergency warnings for NSW bushfires

NSW RFS Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons was confident the firefighters would gain the upper hand on the most troublesome blazes, but winds of up to 60km/h were still going to be problematic.

The NSW Rural Fire Service on Wednesday issued an emergency warning first for a fire near Ulladulla and another further north, in North Nowra, with some residents being told it is "too late to leave".

"It'll be days and days to try and get containment of both of those fires", he said. Last week 100 per cent of the state was declared either "in drought" or "drought affected".

"It is a really early start to these severe fires, and it's only really been three months since the last serious fire we had, which was in April".

Milton resident Jodi Smith said the fire was a "small glow on the mountain" when she went to work at 4.30am on Wednesday.

"I have lived here for 45 years. but I haven't seen anything like this", she said.

An out-of-control fire burns near Ulladulla, on the NSW south coast.

"We're seeing something which is unusual in the extreme", he said.

Insp Shepherd said properties between Tindal and Eldon Rds on the eastern side of the Gwydir Hwy could be under threat, with ground crews still assessing the threat on the northern side of the road.

There are now "Very High" fire danger conditions, with this making it hard to bring the fire under control.

Even without an early declaration of the fire season - which brings restrictions on burning-off activities - authorities are understood to have been preparing to shift assets to regions that are considered to have especially high fire risks this spring.

Four firefighters have been injured while battling a blaze on NSW's mid north coast after their tanker rolled over.

That contingent is helping to co-ordinate responses to huge blazes that continue to burn in California and other USA states. More than a dozen outbuildings were also destroyed across the region.

The RFS said firefighters were taking advantage of easing conditions to conduct backburning.

The RFS said emergency phone messages have been sent to residents in the area who are advised to take shelter as the fire front approaches.
