TASMANIA'S chief fire officer Mike Brown has put the state on alert with hot and windy weather conditions set to continue tomorrow.
Bushfires are already burning at Molesworth in the state's South and north east of Bicheno on the East Coast.
Tomorrow, the Bureau of Meteorology expects temperatures to top 30 degrees celsius and the Tasmanian Fire Service has declared it a day of total fire ban.
Mr Brown said firefighters had been working hard on containment lines of bushfires but wanted all Tasmanians to stay alert.
``It's going to be a hot day. It's going to be a windy day. We need people to have an understanding of what's happening around them. If you see smoke, respond to that. If you see fire, call 000,'' he said.
Of particular concern to firefighters is the lower Midlands, Derwent Valley and Coal River Valley.
Mr Brown said the TFS was being extra cautious because of the dangerous weather conditions, dry landscape and amount of growth that is potential fuel for fires.
This fire season is being described as the worst the state has seen since the 1967 bushfires that killed 62 people and destroyed 1293 homes. So far, no one has been killed but last month's bushfire at Dunalley destroyed 126 properties.
