The fire was on the corner of Adairs Lane and the Heathcote-Kyneton Rd, Mia Mia.

A RAGING fire burnt about two acres of bush on the corner of Adairs Lane and the Heathcote-Kyneton Road, Mia Mia on Saturday evening.

Heathcote Fire Brigade came with five tankers to battle the blaze, which threatened to consume a nearby house.

The house survived unscathed, but one cubby house suffered structural damage.

Brigade captain Carl Watkins said the rapid change in weather conditions had helped spread the fire. ‘‘The wind and heat got up on Saturday, which made matters much worse,’’ he said.

Pagers went off at 4.50pm on Saturday and brigade members battled the blaze throughout the evening and continued to mop up Sunday.
