All fires but one contained

Fire crews brace for the hot weather and dry conditions forecast for later this week as three of the four bushfires in northern NSW have been contained.
Firefighters are continuing their back burning operations at Coaldale, northwest of Grafton, in an attempt to establish containment lines around the fire.
No properties are under threat, but people in the area are being advised to ensure their properties are bushfire prepared, the Rural Fire Service says.
