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.
Landholders are being reminded that if they're looking to conduct burn offs on their properties, they are still required to let fire authorities and neighbours know before lighting up.
Those areas where the Bush Fire Danger Period has ended include:
• Richmond Valley
• Clarence Valley
• Coffs Harbour
