UPDATE, noon: The small grass and scrub fire has been declared under control by the CFA.

Forest Fire Management Victoria'a Jeff Wilkie said the fire started on private property and impacted public land, meaning his group was brought in to assist fire fighting efforts.

The fire spread to half a hectare in size and was now classed as contained, Mr Wilkie said.

Some units would remain on scene.
