Residents in Victoria remain on alert as two large bushfires continue to burn in Gippsland and the state's north-east.
The Harrietville Alpine blaze has caused spot fires around Kings Spur, near Dargo, while the northern end of the blaze continues to burn below the Hotham village.
The Aberfeldy fire in Gippsland is now 83,000 hectares in size.
Almost 200 firefighters and a number of aircraft are working on containment lines and back-burning around the blaze, which is burning in difficult and remote terrain.
A high to very high fire danger continues in those regions but temperatures are milder.
There has also been some light rainfall, but not enough to help bring the fires under control.
Deputy state fire controller Trevor White says strike teams remain stationed in Hotham village and around private properties in the Kings Spur Track area, near Dargo.
"It's a case of continual monitoring by fire crews who will be in the area for some time, and certainly vigilance by all the locals," he said.
Mr White says although temperatures are cooler today winds are still strong.
"We'll see some isolated showers actually over southern and mountain districts and they'll contract to Gippsland during the afternoon," he said.
"We have high fire danger in all weather districts with the exception of the North East, Northern Country, North Central where it's very high fire danger today so people need to be very vigilant and careful."
Firefighters have contained smaller bushfires at Port Fairy, in Victoria's south-west, in Kerrie near Gisborne, north-west of Melbourne and at Eltham, in Melbourne's north.
