New South Wales is facing dangerous fire conditions on Saturday, with a heatwave expected to hit the state.

It’s expected to reach 41 degrees on parts of the South Coast of NSW tomorrow, with strong winds predicted.

A state of emergency has been declared in the ACT, as the Orroral Valley fire continues to burn.

It’s expected to cross over into NSW on Friday night.

The NSW Rural Fire Service has declared total fire bans in five areas of the state.

The NSW government is also asking people to help reduce electricity demand over the weekend, especially between 5pm and 9pm.

They’re calling on people to switch off non-essential appliances, turn off pool pumps and set air conditioners to a minimum of 24 degrees.
