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

Later the same day another fire ignited around 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.
