A grass fire burnt about one hectare off Bellmans Road at Bushfield on Wednesday.

A Warrnambool CFA brigade spokesman said the fire started when residents burnt off vegetation as a fire prevention measure and the blaze escaped up a steep hill.

Woodford and Wangoom brigades also fought the fire. A narrow driveway hampered access and the spokesman said providing proper access should be part of fire precautions.
