When crews first arrived on scene, about a fifth of a hectare had been impacted by fire and the flames were creeping up several large Cypress trees.

There were six CFA vehicles on scene from Woodend, Macedon, Carlsruhe, Tylden, Newham and Hesket brigades.

It took just over two hours to bring the fire under control and black out the area.

Later the same day another fire ignited about 100 metres from the first incident, though was quickly contained by local CFA crews from Woodend, Carlsruhe and Newham.

Victoria Police were on scene and are investigating both incidents.
