Bushfire season ends early after rain, mild conditions

The Bush Fire Danger Period has officially ended early on the Far North Coast due to mild conditions and recent wet weather.

NSW Rural Fire Service made the announcement on social media on Monday.

Usually the season ends on March 31 annually but because of recent ongoing rainfall, the RFS deemed it safe to close this summer's bushfire warning period.
