Megafire battle a 'race against time'

Almost 100 fires are still burning across NSW today, with dozens of blazes still not contained.

What has been dubbed a "megafire" is still burning out of control north of Sydney and could take weeks to put out.

Temperatures are expected to soar across the state next week, with winds forecast to whip dangerous fire grounds.
