Lulworth may be at high risk from an uncontrolled bushfire in the next four hours.
The Tasmania Fire Service have put out a Watch and Act alert for the fire, which started last night.
Lulworth is on the North-East coast between Bridport and Low Head.
The fire was 194 hectares as of 11am Sunday, and was being fought with eight light tankers, three heavy tankers, two medium tankers, and two aircraft.
Lulworth resident Selena Cossins said she could see the flames from her house.
"I'm pretty shaken up," she said. "The police came round last night and let us all know, so we've all packed our necessities in the car ready to go. There's only one way in and out.
"I'm right on top of the hill, so I can see everything. The helicopters have been filling up in the ocean about every four minutes.
"They're unreal, they get so close to one another - they know what they're doing."
Ms Cossins said she wanted to thank the firefighters for defending the town.
"I'm just grateful for their help," she said.
"I've never had do that on-the-spur-of-the-moment thinking about what I'm going to pack in the car.
"Keepsakes from the kids, keepsakes from my grandparents - I was in tears. I was probably thinking the worst, but you have to at times like this."
There is a 20 to 30 km/h northwesterly wind blowing that is expected to become light Sunday evening, according to the Bureau of Meteorology forecast.
Showers are forecast for Monday and Tuesday, with winds of up to 45 km/h forecast on Monday in the North-East.
The TFS said there may be embers, smoke and ash falling on Lulworth that threaten your home earlier than the main fire,
Fire under these conditions can be difficult to control.
What to do:
If your home is well prepared and actively defended, it should provide shelter.
If you are going to leave, make sure you have a clear path to a safer place.
If your family has made a bushfire survival plan, use it now.
If you don't live near Lulworth, stay away. The roads could be very dangerous.
