Tasmania Fire Service is battling a bushfire on the state's East Coast.
The bushfire at Dune Street, Scamander, could put the town at high risk, with the potential for the fire to be difficult to control.
Tasmania Fire Service has advised residents to start taking action to protect their family and home, and if not prepared for a bushfire, to be ready to leave for a safer place.
Those who don't live at Scamander are asked to avoid the area.
The fire comes on the day of a fire weather warning for much of the state, with the East Coast at a Very High Fire Danger level.
