Late yesterday afternoon CFS were called to the Mid North town of Booborowie for an out of control bush fire.
The fire burnt through 40 hectares of scrub between Clare and Peterborough with speculation a Header sparked the blaze which was contained by fire crews.
CFS crews later began burning operations in the evening, in an effort to secure fire edges.
Crews will remain on site monitoring the fire ground until it is safe.
CFS advice that there may be smoke in this area and remind the public to be cautious of CFS crews working around roads until the operation is completed.
There is no threat to life or property, with locals encouraged to visit the CFS website for updates.
