The Wreck Bay Fire which was heading towards the Jervis Bay Village has now been downgraded to a watch and Act Status, with conditions starting to ease across the fire ground.

Crews will be carrying out back burning over the coming hours to try and contain the blaze.

In the meantime Inspector Ben Shepherd is urging people to remain vigilant.

Earlier emergency Alert telephone warnings were sent to people in the area while firefighters and the large air tanker Thor were used to slow the spread of the fire.
