Parts of the region, which has endured a series of bad fire days, are forecast to reach more than 40 degrees on Saturday.

"You dodge a bullet, but there's another two coming," RFS member Rick James said of the NSW South Coast fires that are lingering and are set to be fanned by worse weather on Saturday.

The Eurobodalla Council said communities around Tilba, which include historic wooden houses and businesses, were at particular risk on Saturday."As a result, the villages of Central Tilba and Tilba Tilba will be closed for business on Saturday," the council announced on Facebook. Fran and John Sanders are grateful their property escaped the fires that claimed others along their road near Moruya."Unless the drought breaks, he's going to need that for the winter," Mrs Sanders said. The drought gripping the region is the worst Mrs Sanders said she had ever seen in the area.
