More than 60 bush and grass fires burned across NSW on Saturday and Sunday in what police have called the first major blazes of the season.
The Bushfire Royal Commission has also warned longer seasons worldwide may make it harder to obtain specilaist aircraft from overseas in future.

Aerial firefighters were dispatched to tackle a bushfire spreading in strong winds near the NSW-Queensland border on Wednesday.
