While Friday saw hot and windy conditions on the Far South Coast, fires threatening the region eased overnight with both the Werri Berri and Border Fire returning to Advice level.
By 12pm on Saturday all fires in the South East were at Advice and conditions were easing across most firegrounds.
According to the NSW Rural Fire Service, the Border Fire is burning from the Victorian border north and so far has covered 156,000ha and has merged with a fire burning on Poole Road.
It is burning south of Eden and has impacted the areas of Wonboyn, Kiah, Narrabarba and surrounds, while also spreading near Burragate.
The RFS recommends most regions nearby continue to monitor the situation, but in addition says for those in Burragate, Towamba, Nethercote and surrounds if your plan is to leave or you are not prepared, leaving early is the safest option.
The Werri Berri fire is burning to the north of Bemboka and west of Brogo and has covered 21,000ha.
The RFS recommends if you are in the areas west of Bega between Snowy Mountains Hwy in the north and Candelo-Bega Rd in the south, as well as the Desert Creek and Double Creek, Yankees Gap or Brogo areas, monitor conditions and know what you will do if the fire threatens.
The RFS also reports a grass fire has begun off Yankees Gap Rd, north of Bemboka, but is in the process of being controlled.
The 80ha bushfire that began on Myrtle Mountain, near Wyndham, remains under control.
The Badja Forest Road fire has now covered 237,000ha and remains out of control, with a number of bushfires continuing to burn in the area of Big Belimba Creek and Bumbo Creek, in the Dampier State Forest, to the west of Nerrigundah and Bodalla and the Badja Forest Rd, Countegany area.
Those in Bermagui, Regatta Point, Wallaga Lake, Wallaga Lake Heights and Akolele are advised to continue monitoring conditions and know what to do if the fire threatens.
The same advice is for Cobargo, Coolagolite, Quaama, Mcleods Hill, Wandella, Upper Brogo, Yowrie and Verona, but the fire front has passed through these areas and there are still active fires in the regions.
