Do you need a fire permit in your area?
THE bush fire season has started early in six Local Government Areas across NSW due to local conditions.
These areas include Tenterfield, Armidale Regional, Walcha, Uralla, Glen Innes, Severn and Inverell.
NSW Rural Fire Service said while an early fire season is not unusual in these areas, increased grass growth due to recent rain could prove problematic over coming weeks and months.
