Volunteer firefighters from the NSW Rural Fire Service Cudgegong District and firefighters from NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service were called to a bush fire burning east of Wollar Village on Monday afternoon.
While there was no immediate threat to property the difficulty was that the fire was burning in inaccessible terrain.
