Very high fire danger issued for second day in a row

THE NSW Rural Fire Service have issued a new very high fire danger warning for the Northern Rivers and the Far North Coast today.

All fire permits in the regions have also been suspended until midnight.

Today is the second day in a row the Rural Fire Service has rated the fire danger in the region as "very high".

The "very high" rating sits in the middle of the fire danger scale, behind "severe", "extreme", and "catastrophic".

North Coast Rural Fire Service operational services coordinator Inspector Matthew Inwood said the warmer weather is a reminder for those in the Northern Rivers and Mid North Coast to be vigilant as we move into the warmer months of the year.

"Even in spring we're seeing very warm conditions and it's a timely reminder for residents to make sure they have their properties well prepared and a bush fire survival plan in place," Inspector Inwood said.

The warning covers the Far North Coast, North Coast, and New England regions.
