Fire crews are at the scene of a large bushfire just outside of Katherine.
According to Police, Fire and Emergency Services, the fire is located between the motocross track and the showground/horse racing track area off Bicentennial Road.
Katherine fire crews are conducting defensive tactics to contain the fire.
Motorists in the area are urged to drive with caution as crews may be working near the roadside and smoke could impact visibility.
It comes as extra firies were sent to Katherine last week amid dangerous bushfire conditions across the region.
