The crews had advised the fire was not moving and would most likely be contained quite easily, the spokeswoman said.

Though of unconfirmed size, crews indicated the fire was burning on a 30 acre space.

The Rural Fire Service website has also indicated a vegetation fire burning in the vicinity of Hutchins Rd at Amamoor.

Two fire crews were required on that scene as of 4.11pm, but the fire was not posing any immediate threat.
