Firefighters were busy containing a bush fire burning near Quarry Road, Dural on Tuesday.
‘‘We have had reports of a caravan that has been burnt on the same street but firefighters seem to have the upper hand on this fire at the moment,’’ Kane Lambkin, the district officer for Hornsby/Ku-ring-gai Rural Fire Service, told the News on Tuesday.
The service has 13 fire trucks on the scene dealing with the situation and Ms Lambkin assures ‘‘no houses are currently under threat’’.
They were alerted of the fire at 12.20pm.
The Hills District Office of the Rural Fire Service in Kenthurst sent five tankers and one group officer to the fire 10 minutes later to assist.
‘‘Basically with winds like this we are asking for people to be vigilant and to dial triple-0 immediately if they do see smoke,’’ Mr Lambkin said.
At 1.20pm the status of this fire was listed as ‘‘out of control’’ on the RFS website.
It is now listed as ‘‘being controlled’’ and remains at a ‘‘watch and act’’ alert level.
Firefighters will remain on scene blacking out and mopping up over the next few hours.
