There is a watch and act message in place for Woodside and surrounding areas.
The out of control grass fire at the South Gippsland Highway, Woodside, is travelling in a northerly direction.
The fire is burning on both sides of the highway near the former Omega Tower, Tucketts Track and Boundary Road.
UPDATE: The fire is now deemed safe and under control as an advice message has been issued.
The fire, allegedly sparked by a tractor bailing hay, is approximately 10 hectares in size and has destroyed the vehicle along with a shed and haystack.
The blaze proved difficult as the CFA crews that responded needed aerial assistance with water bombers dropping around a dozen loads of water.
CFA crews have brought the grass fire under control just before 3:30pm.
