Members of the Port Macquarie Fire and Rescue NSW are currently fighting an out of control bush fire in the Sea Acres National Park, Port Macquarie.

Fire and Rescue were called to the bush fire just before 2pm on Tuesday, October 2.  It is currently around one hectare in size.

Superintendent Norm Buckley said local crews were currently on the scene.

“There are currently four fire trucks on the scene as well as RFS assistance and police presence in the area,” Superintendent Buckley said.

“The fire is burning in the national park and is only accessible on tracks which crews are navigating.

“Our last update at 3.20pm was that firefighters are currently fighting it from the Miners Beach side and are working together to take control of the area.

“The fire is slow burning and we are confident that it will be extinguished.”

Port Macquarie Police have closed Lighthouse Beach Road at Pacific Drive and a police spokesperson said there were fire crews as well as police on scene.

“At this stage the road will remain closed until further notice as there is a smoke threat in the area,” he said.
