Fire fighters across New South Wales are preparing for a day of dangerous bushfire conditions fuelled by unseasonably warm spring temperatures and dry, gusty winds.

About 70 bushfires are burning across the state, 20 of which are uncontained. In particular, authorities are concerned about fires on the state's north coast, which are burning near key infrastructure and could flare up as containment lines have not been established.

Temperatures in Sydney are forecast to reach 32C coupled with strong north-westerly winds. A dry, southerly change is expected in the afternoon, which could once again whip-up the fire danger.

Overnight, crews focused their efforts on a bushfire at Beacon Hill, which was burning dangerously close to homes and a nearby school.

At the peak of the fire, two water bombing aircraft were brought in to tackle the flames from above, as 100 fire fighters worked along the fire front to establish containment lines.

The fire burned through more than 30 hectares of land, and has now been contained. Crews spent much of the morning putting out spot fires.

Investigators are working to determine the cause of the fire, but there are fears it may have been deliberately lit. Anyone caught deliberately lighting fires faces serious penalties, including possible jail time.
