Bridgenorth Road has reopened.
On Saturday morning the road was closed between Gerrard Street (near the Legana Christian Church) and 298 Bridgenorth Road due to firefighting operations.
Alternate routes were South Bridgenorth Road to Ecclestone Road for those wishing to travel to Launceston and Long Plains Road to Frankford Road to Exeter.
Access to the Legana Christian Church was available.
SES were present and running the traffic control at both ends of the road closure.
The 21-hectare fire continues to smoulder but alert levels have been removed.
A TFS spokeswoman said work would continue on the fire on Sunday,
"A bulldozer is pushing trees along the fire edge to make a containment line," she said.
"They're just doing assessment on all the burned trees and working on getting it extinguished."
Rain on Sunday will give way to hotter temperatures this week, with maximums of 23 degrees on Monday, 28 degrees on Tuesday, 29 degrees on Wednesday, up to 31 degrees on Thursday, and 28 degrees on Friday.
There will be winds of up to 35 km/h on Monday, 15 to 20 km/h on Tuesday and Wednesday, and up to 25 km/h on Thursday.
An uncontrolled bushfire caused road closures at Legana on Saturday.
Crews from nine areas were called to the fire, with TFS respondents from Launceston, Legana, Bridgenorth, Glengarry, Gravelly Beach, Ravenswood, Beconsfield, Prospect, and Winkleigh answering the call-out.
Two aircraft also fought the blaze.
The State Emergency Service and Tasmania Police assisted with traffic control at Bridgenorth Road.
The fire was first reported at 1.24pm on Saturday.
It was upgraded to Watch and Act about 5.14pm, and was downgraded again about 6.14pm.
The fire was between Legana and Bridgenorth off the West Tamar Highway, and Bridgenorth Road between number 187 and the West Tamar Highway was closed.
A TFS spokeswoman said it was believed the uncontrolled fire started when a backburn conducted by a private landowner escaped containment lines.
However, that was unconfirmed as of Saturday evening.
The spokeswoman said the road closures were due to the hazard caused by thick smoke.
"It's in very steep terrain," she said.

"Crews are putting in backburns to put in containment lines so there will be a significant amount of smoke.
"We do have lots of resources to bring it under control."
Winds in the area exceeded 20 km/h on Saturday, the spokeswoman said.
"Anything over 15 km/h has the potential to drive fires out," she said.
She said the fire was another reminder for communities to be alert and to go over their bushfire plans.
"People certainly be thinking about their bushfire plans and putting those in place," she said.
