UPDATE: FIRE crews have brought a grassfire at Lethbridge under control as authorities downgrade the fire warnings for the Grampians.
A Watch and Act message for the 10ha fire in the Lethbridge area between Bannockburn and Meredith was downgraded soon after issuing as fire crews worked hard to bring it under control.
Meanwhile, in the Grampians firefighters hope to have containment lines around the 31,500ha blaze later today.The fire is still out of control but warnings for surrounding communities have been downgraded.
Advice messages for smoke apply to Glenisla, Cherrypool, Woohlpooer and Mooralla. Overnight there had been Emergency Warnings for the area.
The message this afternoon states the fire is active in the Victoria Range and Rocklands Reservoir and along the Glenelg River Rd in the area of Woohlpooer and Mooralla.
It is believed two sheds, 15km of fencing, 60 sheep and about 1700ha of grassland and pasture have been destroyed.
The fire has crossed the Henty Highway and is closed between Mooralla and Cherrypool.
The highway is also closed between Hamilton and Cavendish.
State Control Centre spokesman Graeme Baxter said crews were strengthening containment lines.
He said winds weren't as strong as forecast but the area remained dry and warm.
Grampians Tourism and Parks Victoria this afternoon said Halls Gaps, Mt Zero, Wartook and Dunkeld were all open for business.
Mr Baxter said rain had fallen overnight in the Gippsland area giving crews some rest before they returned to continue containment work on the Harrietville fire.
The Aberfeldy fire, which has been burning for 34 days, "does not have as much bite" as previously, he said.
