Weather eases fire conditions on NSW coast

Favourable weather conditions have eased an out-of-control fire burning on the NSW mid-north coast.

The bushfire has burnt about 1780 hectares at Crescent Head near Port Macquarie and was threatening homes on Plomer Road after westerly winds pushed the blaze east on Wednesday evening.

Firefighters were able to gain the upper hand after the winds eased, allowing them to plan backburning operations overnight.

The previous watch and act warning has been downgraded to advice for residents in the Plomer Road, Maria River and North Shore Road areas.
