As a result of the efforts by the fire crews from Bulahdelah, Pindimar/Tea Gardens, Booral and Stroud, there was no damage to the homes.

The cause of the fire is under investigation and Mr Parr estimates about 50 hectares of land was damaged by the blaze.

Mr Parr told News Of The Area this incident is a reminder of the importance of preparing for the fire season.

“Prepare your properties and always expect the unexpected, when the fire is on you, it is too late,” he said.

“People should go and look at the RFS website and download a bushfire survival plan.”

The Bushfire Danger Period commenced on 1 October and a permit is now required from the RFS by anyone wanting to conduct a burn.
