Three rural properties and a family day care centre in the Hunter Valley have been evacuated as a precaution, as authorities battle a scrub fire in hot, windy conditions.

More than 60 firefighters from the Rural Fire Service and Fire and Rescue NSW have been sent to the area.

RFS Superintendent Jason McKellar said aerial waterbombing is also underway, as the fire is fanned by rising temperatures and gusty north westerly winds.
