The out of control bushfire that started off Yankees Gap Rd spread to over 5500ha by Sunday and has moved towards Brogo.
On its website the NSE Rural Fire Service said the fire was moving in a north-easterly direction towards Brogo under strong south-westerly winds.
The service said if you are in Brogo and surrounding areas - including Desert Creek Rd, Hawks Head Rd and Dorrigo Rd – you should check and follow your bush fire survival plan.
If you do not have a plan, decide what you will do if the situation changes. Leaving early is your safest option.
However the fire remained at an Advice alert level.
On Sunday, firefighters again fought against strong winds. According to Weatherzone, around midday in Bega wind gusts reached 69km/h and wind speeds topped 48km/h.
