Australia's most populous city avoided the worst of the weekend conditions, but authorities have raised the forecast for greater Sydney region to catastrophic fire danger for Tuesday.
New South Wales premier Gladys Berejiklian has declared a state of emergency as bushfires continue to ravage the state.
She was treated for burns before being transferred to a Sydney hospital where she later died, the RFS said on Saturday.
Another five people remained missing in the vicinity of the Glen Innes fire and authorities held grave fears for their safety, Fitzsimmons said.
In NSW, more than 150 buildings have been razed so far, and three lives were lost in the fires burning in northern parts of the state.

"There are other states where the risk is also high", Morrison said, adding that a nationwide emergency meeting of fire and emergency services chiefs had been called earlier that day. Twelve emergency warnings are in place, which means the fires are considered "very unsafe", per the fire service.
"'The RFS can't get to her they are trying.the road down is a tunnel of fire".
Human built mammoth traps made 15,000 years ago discovered
Wooly mammoths , elephant-like creatures that once inhabited nearly every continent, became extinct about 4,000 years ago. The remains of species of horse and camel that disappeared from the Americas were also discovered at the site.
"We know the weather forecast for tomorrow is at catastrophic levels, ' Berejiklian said". "It used to be God's country, but it ain't any more", said another neighbour, 72-year-old Dave Scott.
Bushfires are common in Australia but the country has experienced a dramatic start to what scientists predict will be a tough fire season - with climate change and weather cycles contributing to the risky combination of strong winds, high temperatures and dry conditions.
With thousands of people forced to flee from their homes, Australia's government was offering immediate emergency assistance payments of up to Aus$1,000 (US$685) to those affected and extended financial support for anyone unable to work as a result.
In Queensland, more than 1,200 firefighters were battling 51 active fires across the state on Sunday, with 39 aircraft deployed to assist for the first time ever in the state.
Home to more than 5 million people, Sydney is ringed by large areas of bushland, much of which remains tinder dry following little rain across the country's east coast in recent months.
People are being told to leave for their survival now. "We've got winds blowing, they're circling, it's like a cyclone". "Some are creating their own weather conditions and pyrocumulous clouds are developing", the NSW RFS said.
