Residents near the NSW mid-north coast town of Verges Creek are being told it's too late to leave as an out-of-control bushfire encroaches on homes.


The Rural Fire Service issued an emergency warning on Saturday for homes and properties on Lotus Road as the fire - which started on Old Station Road - is being fanned by strong southeasterly winds.


"Shelter as the fire approaches, it's too late to leave," a RFS spokesman said.
