Some Laurieton and Dunbogan residents have received evacuation messages as a fire in the Crowdy Bay National Park continues to burn.
The evacuate message came at 5pm, on November 8, as two fires south of Laurieton, in Crowdy Bay National Park and at Hillville cause "concern" for the Rural Fire Service.
The RFS say the current situation has the immediate fire threat burning in the National Park towards Crowdy Head.
The fire has burnt more than 6500 hectares since it began. It is continuing to spread in a northerly direction east of Johns River towards Diamond Head, Laurieton and Dunbogan.
The fire is also spreading towards the Harrington area.
RFS district officer Stuart Robb said residents received the message due to a potential wind change later tonight (Friday).
"Crews have been fighting two fires south Laurieton,which are our two biggest concerns for Camden Haven residents," Mr Robb said.
"We are expecting a southerly wind change after 10pm tonight which has the potential to move the Bills Crossing fire quite rapidly towards Dunbogan and Laurieton.
"We are advising residents if they feel unsafe to evacuate now before the conditions change."
Mr Robb said the fire is currently burning at the back of Crowdy Bay National Park.
"Firefighters and water bombing aircraft are working hard to protect homes and we have issued the warning that if you are in the areas of Laurieton and Dunbogan and your plan is to leave, leave now while it is safe to do so," he said.
"If you are in the areas of Crowdy Head and Harrington, seek shelter if the fire approaches and if you are in the areas of Diamond Head watch out for smoke and embers."
He said firefighters and water bombing aircraft are working hard to protect homes.
"People in Laurieton and Dunbogan need to check and follow their Bush Fire Survival Plan as leaving early is your safest option.
"Due to the fire there have been a number fire evacuation centres set up including Laurieton United Services Club."
Laurieton United Services Club manager Rob Dwyer said they were prepared to have people and stay overnight if necessary.
"At the moment we have a steady stream of people coming through the door with their pets and lots of their belongings," Mr Dwyer said.
"We are making sure everyone has access for a safe place to stay, and, at the moment it is a watch and wait game.
"But we are prepared to have people stay at the club overnight if needed."
