Gunnedah's emergency services crews have had another busy night dealing with a car fire and multiple bin fires, which firies have described as malicious and infuriating.
At 10.11pm on Tuesday night, Gunnedah Fire and Rescue were called to two bins alight on Little Barber Street.
The crew quickly extinguished them, but deputy captain Andrew Johns said it was "infuriating behaviour" while bushfires raged on the north coast and at Tenterfield.
"Anything that's got a fuel load like that - bins burn very well - anything close to it could catch fire," Mr Johns said.
"All of our firies have other jobs. We've been out quite a bit lately in the small hours of the morning for different jobs, had people in Tenterfield and been dealing with the structural fire [on Jaegar Avenue]."
About 11pm, the firies, Gunnedah Rural Fire Service (RFS) and Gunnedah police were called to a car fire on Mathias Road.
Police say the car wasn't stolen, but they were still determining how the fire was started.
"It was just parked in situ when the owner went to work ... investigations are continuing," Gunnedah police's Sergeant Mark Benson said.
Liverpool Range RFS district manager Myles O'Reilly said the car fire was "called in by a member of the public".
"Both [RFS and Fire and Rescue] responded quickly and extinguished the fire quickly," Mr O'Reilly said.
Almost two hours later, at 1.45am, Gunnedah Fire and Rescue's crew was called to another bin fire on Little Barber Street.
Mr Johns said the firies enjoyed serving the community but not "when people do these things deliberately".
"We'll continue to do it and we love helping our community, but we wish there was less incidents of malicious intent," he said.
"While ever there's been man on Earth, people have been burning stuff deliberately, but I don't know what they're trying to achieve [burning bins] besides annoying people."
The Gunnedah region's bushfire danger rating is in the high zone today.
