Bushfires continue to ravage parts of New South Wales

Firefighters say they could be stretched even further today - as more than a 140 fires rage around the state. 30 of those blazes are uncontained - including one near Lithgow, and closed the Bells Line of Road.

The biggest fire at Yarrabin near Cooma and Deans Gap in the Shoalhaven have been brought under control at this stage - after threatening properties overnight.

But it's feared more fires could start in the state's north - as the extreme conditions which lashed Sydney and the state's south yesterday move their way.

While crews are concerned winds from a cool southerly could whip up fires still burning in the south and west.
