Fire and Rescue crews and Rural Fire Service firefighters are on scene at the education campus working to extinguish the fire that broke out in bushland off Hogbin Drive a short time ago.

Flames are being fanned by strong 30kmh northerly winds.

There are large plumes of smoke in the area.

A Rural Fire Service spokesman said crews remain on scene and there is no risk to buildings at the campus.
