A BUSHFIRE continues to burn out of control northwest of Hobart but cooler temperatures have delivered some relief to firefighters.
Tasmania Fire Service spokesman Paul Symington said the blaze in Molesworth had quietened down since late last night but the fire was still very much active.
"We've got temperatures into the low, very low 20s with winds coming from the southwest. That's made fire fighting conditions better than it has been over the last few days," Mr Symington said.
Three helicopters and 31 fire trucks are working to subdue the 2480ha blaze.
Mr Symington said no properties were under threat but there were crews in place doing property protection.
Twenty-four members of a remote area team from NSW are being flown in to fight areas of the fire inaccessible by vehicles.
Mr Symington said there had been a few spot fires but the south westerly wind had helped firefighters attempting to control them.
"If the wind does pick up that could change," he said.
The Tasmania Fire Service also has an advice in place for a 1500ha fire at Fingal, southeast of Launceston.
No communities are under threat but motorists are turning their headlights on due to smoke across the Tasman Highway.
