Crews from the Rural Fire Service spent Wednesday battling more than 80 fires across the state, with 50 uncontained.

Although the Clarence Valley fire at Bristol Arms Road is burning close to some properties, they are not now under threat.

It's the earliest declaration of a total fire ban in the regions in nearly a decade, the NSW Rural Fire Service tweeted on Wednesday afternoon.

The chopper had been registered to Sydney Helicopters since May 2015, with their website saying the company had provided "many hundreds of hours" of aerial waterbombing to NSW and ACT fire agencies.

Mr Webster said firefighters were using a "window of opportunity" to backburn ahead of deteriorating conditions on Saturday.

"We've got the largest fire complex burning in San Francisco and fires burning in the Glacier National Park on the Canadian border, which we've just sent crews to, and now we have this extreme weather fanning NSW fires in winter".

"I'm looking out my window and half of the sky is blue and then there's a definite line in the sky and to the left it's very orange, the sun is very filtered, there's choppers in the sky, there's quite thick smoke and it's very windy", she said.
