A man has been charged after allegedly stealing fire-fighting equipment and a National Parks and Wildlife Service uniform in the NSW Blue Mountains.

Police were patrolling a dirt access road between Blackheath and Medlow Bath railway stations yesterday when they made the discovery during a raid of the 56-year-old man's car.

Hundreds of fire crews remain in the field, battling blazes across the country.

According to police, an amount of cannabis was also allegedly seized.

The man, who is not a member of the National Parks and Wildlife Service or the Rural Fire Service, was charged with goods in personal custody suspected of being stolen and possessing a prohibited drug.

He was granted strict conditional bail and is due to appear at Katoomba Local Court on January 27.
