Incident Controller Darren Pitt said the fire was very visible from a wide area due to its high elevation.

"The Bobbiwaa Creek Fire is believed to have started with a lightning strike and is currently being controlled using aircraft, heavy plant and crews from NPWS and RFS.

"Currently the fire is approximately 150 hectares in size, within Mount Kaputar National Park and not threatening property.

"Warmer conditions on Wednesday may see fire activity increase and we are working with the RFS to develop contingency plans if the fire expands.

"Some visitor areas within the park, such as Sawn Rocks Day Use Area are closed to the public while the fire fighting operations are underway.

"People intending to visit Mt Kaputar are encouraged to check for the latest information on closures on the national parks website NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service or contact the Narrabri NPWS Office," Mr Pitt said.
