A HOUSE and 5ha of bush have been burned in a grass fire at St Ives, east of Mount Barker in the Adelaide hills this morning.
The fire caused the temporary closure of the South-Eastern Freeway, AdelaideNow reports.
The median strip on the freeway was also burned.
The CFS used water drops by support aircraft to get ahead of the fire and it is now contained.
At least one motorist reported lengthy delays on the freeway because of the fire.
"Grass fire majorly holding up traffic between Mt Barker and Callington" Madeleine Weston told AdelaideNow via Twitter.
"Looks like a grass fire that spread across two lanes heading out of the city," she wrote.
"Took 45mins to make 2km.
"We've got aircon, not so lucky for the hard working (SA Police and CFS people) doing a great job in the heat."
Meanwhile, a fire near Sevenhill in the Clare Valley continues to burn inside control lines.
There are hotspots and embers still present and fire crews will be in attendance to extinguish these throughout the day.
The CFS advises smoke is still emanating from the fireground and there is still potential for the fire to escape control lines.
Residents are advised to check and follow their bushfire survival plan.
Fire crews are working in and around the following roads - Willow Glean Rd, Hughes Park Rd and Cambell Rd - and the public are requested to only access the area if required and if possible avoid the area, as visibility may be reduced.
