Bush Fire Flares Up Again In Sydney's Northern Beaches Twitter @NSWRFB

A bush fire in Sydney’s Northern Beaches appears to have flared up again.

The New South Wales Rural Fire Service tweeted around 11.30pm today that crews and aircrafts were attending a blaze at Beacon Hill.

More than 100 firefighters  battled to bring an out-of-control grassfire north of Sydney to a halt on Tuesday.

The fire broke out on Tuesday morning at Beacon Hill, with 115 firefighters using water tankers back-burning near houses in the area.

The blaze came within range of homes and Oxford Falls Grammar School but, by mid afternoon on Tuesday, Rural Fire Service crews and water bombing aircraft were holding it at bay.

Now it seems to have flared up again. No homes are at immediate risk.

Total fire bans were issued that afternoon for the North coast, Greater Sydney, Greater Hunter and North Western regions.
