Strong, warm winds have reignited a fire in remnants of a wood harvest at Dereel which was initially sparked a week ago.

The fire was contained and not posing any threats to the community late on Wednesday and crews were preparing to remain on scene to monitor the fire well into the evening.

A warning was issued to advise of smoke in the area.

11 crews from Dereel, Ballarat City, Buninyong, Barunah North, Hardies Hill, Napoleons Enfield, Rokewood and Shelford worked on the fire.
