CFA has just controlled an 80 hectare grass and scrub fire at Calivil, 70 kilometres north of Bendigo.

Firefighters were called to the incident on Lairds Road around 2.40pm.

Initial reports said two sheds have been lost in the crop fire but no properties were under threat.

CFA issued a Watch and Actmessage for the Calivil community which was later downgraded to an Advice message.

The fire was believed to be caused by a header.

A water aircraft is on scene along with 12 CFA trucks.
