UPDATE: THE wind change in Gippsland has not hindered firefighting efforts in the state's east.
State Control Centre spokesman Garry Weir told Weekly Times Now this afternoon there had been no significant runs of fire with the change.
He said before the change there had been a flare up within lines around Glenmaggie and a spot fire at Cowwarr but they had been contained.
"The wind change was significant. It went through as the bureau had predicted and with the reduced temperatures and moisture in the wind it hasn't been too bad," Mr Weir said.
Meanwhile a fire continues to burn at Harrietville and is about 2500ha in size.
A watch and act warning advice notice remains in place on the CFA website and warns the fire is travelling in a south easterly direction.
"The fire has potential to impact Harrietville anytime within the next 24 hours," the warning says.
Residents have been advised to activate their fire plans.
A watch and act advice notice is also available for the Langkoop area for a fast-moving grass fire impacting the area.
The grassfire is 15ha in size and out of control.
The fire is expected to hit north of the Edenhope-Penola Rd anytime within the next two hours.
Earlier today Mr Weir said the 68,000ha Aberfeldy fire was being tackled by 800 firefighters using 156 vehicles, 26 dozers and 14 aircraft.
The fire's edge is about 416km.
Mr Weir this afternoon said it was hoped thunderstorms in Victoria's North East would deliver rain in the Harrietville area to help the fire fight during the weekend.
More than 100 Department of Sustainability and Environment and CFA firefighters are battling the Harrietville fire with further crews stationed at Mt Hotham and Falls Creek.
Twenty aircraft are fighting the fire from above.
