- The Marthavale-Barmouth Spur bushfire in remote Gippsland generated “its own weather” as it grew overnight
- Firefighters said dry conditions had robbed them of wet gullies or creeks which could help contain the blaze
- In western Victoria, residents evacuated from Lexton overnight were urged to stay away

The fire threatening Tambo Crossing, Wattle Circle and Stirling, to the north-east of Bairnsdale, was downgraded at 7:30pm on Saturday night to a watch-and-act alert: Despite the downgrade, the fire, which spans about 37,000 hectares, is not yet contained by fire crews.
Nearby Brookville spent much of the hottest part of Saturday at emergency level before being downgraded after 9:00pm (AEDT), as the Barmouth Spur fire travelled northbound out-of-control towards the area, threatening homes: Another watch-and-act warning is current for a fire in the state’s west, inland from Portland, affecting Drumborg, Greenwald, Heywood, Hotspur, Lyons, Milltown, Mount Richmond, and West Sinclair.
