19 August, 2018, 22:54
The winter blazes left scientists "gobsmacked" as they tore through parts of NSW, leading to a total fire ban across much of the state.
"The fire is still moving relatively quickly, with further crews mobilised from the Mid North Coast to assist in controlling the blaze".
The NSW Rural Fire Service on Wednesday issued an emergency warning first for a fire near Ulladulla and another further north, in North Nowra, with some residents being told it is "too late to leave".
The NSW RFS said residents in the area of Woodstock, near Ulladulla, were advised to seek shelter in a solid structure as the fire approaches.
The teens attempted to smother the blaze; however, it spread and firefighters from Fire & Rescue NSW were called to extinguish it before it spread into bushland.
The fires destroyed two homes at Bemboka and damaged one home at Nowra, it's since been confirmed.
An emergency warning - the highest possible alert - has been issued by the RFS but some residents have been told it is too risky to leave.

"Our advice - and the images show - it's close to urban areas there".
The NSW RFS said emergency alert messages had been sent to residents in the area, however, Kate Melzer, who lives in the danger zone, said she "had not been told anything".
Strong winds are affecting the region, with gusts of up to 104 kilometres recorded in Nowra earlier, and the Bureau of Meteorology has warned these will get worse.
The RFS said firefighters were taking advantage of easing conditions to conduct backburning. Embers may be blown ahead of the fire, creating spot fires.
There are 79 bush and grass fires burning throughout the state, of which 33 remain uncontained.
The fire had blackened 2300 hectares of land - much of it inaccessible - but it was downgraded to watch and act level before 8pm. "Escaped fires pose a very real and potentially deadly threat to the public, especially if that escaped burn takes hold and fire authorities are not notified", he said.
