Around 30 to 40 people were evacuated from Miena on Monday afternoon after the Great Pine Tier fire broke containment lines and crossed the River Ouse.
Property owner Ron Camm and his dog Boots evacuated to the Great Lake Community Centre.
Mr Camm said he saw massive amounts of smoke and that he doubts his shack to be there when he goes back.
“Everybody has been told to go,” Mr Camm said.
“We had our cars packed a couple of days ago.”
Mr Camm praised the efforts of the TFS in its response to the fire and evacuating residents.
Tasmania Fire Service chief officer Chris Arnol said the Great Pine Tier fire was around five kilometres away from property on Monday afternoon.
“The main fire of concern in relation to proximity of people in the Great Pine Tier fire that is threatening the township of Miena,” Mr Arnol said.
“There’s also an emergency warning for the same reason, that the fire has broken its containment lines, at the Tahune area.”
The Tahune Airwalk has been closed and all visitors have been accounted for.
TFS southern regional chief Jeremy Smith said the Tahune fire has moved through the containment line and on Monday morning was three to four kilometres away from tourist infrastructure.
"We have aircraft water-bombing and doing some aerial observation however, smoke in that area is making it difficult to find out where the fire line is,” Mr Smith said.
“Currently we have 30 crews actively fighting with aerial support.”
Mr Arnol said significant interstate and international resources have been co-opted to help across the state to aid the TFS's efforts.
“We’ve got 119 people in the state and tomorrow we’re having some remote area crews from New Zealand come along to help us in this firefight.”
Bureau of Meteorology state manager Simon McCulloch said temperatures this week are building again after a cooler weekend.
“We have actually issued a fire weather warning for Tuesday for much of the state,” Mr McCulloch said.
“We’ve been running on well-above-average temperatures for most of January.”
Mr McCulloch said the middle of the week will bring some reprieve, building up again through Thursday and Friday.
“From the weather bureau’s point of view, Friday looks to be the most significant fire day we’ve had this season.”
Mr Arnol said the TFS is declaring a statewide fire ban for Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
“We understand that Tasmanians may be preparing to have their long weekend camping activities for the Australia Day weekend, however we unapologetically make this decision to protect all Tasmanians,” Mr Arnol said.
“If we get new fires we will be pushed to the limit.
“We do expect that on Friday fires that we have on the ground right now will break their containment lines. It’s a significantly bad day.”
The Parks and Wildlife Service is extending the current campfire restrictions statewide until further notice.
PWS director of operations Mark Bryce said this means campfire, pot stoves and other solid fuel stove cannot be used in any national parks.
“The decision to extend the campfire restrictions across the sate is due to elevated soil dryness and the risk of new fires starts at a time when there is a significant number of fires already burning,” Mr Bryce said.
“These restrictions are important to help protect visitors and community and to hep reduce the risk of bushfires.”
As firefighting efforts continue, Tasmania Police have issued a reminder to drone users that they cannot fly them in areas where emergency operations using helicopters are underway.
The TFS have declared a total fire ban for Tuesday for the municipalities of Break O'Day, George Town, Northern Midlands, Dorset, Launceston, West Tamar, Flinders, Meander Valley, Brighton, Derwent Valley, Hobart, Sorell, Central Highlands, Glamorgan Spring Bay, Huon Valley, Southern Midlands, Clarence, Glenorchy, Kingborough and Tasman.
