Authorities have been called to a car fire in Towilla Way, Killarney just before 7pm on Monday evening.
Four vehicles were on the scene, including the aerial pumper 70 truck from Fire Rescue Victoria Warrnambool, plus Country Fire Authority crews from Port Fairy, Koroit and Kirkstall, meaning a dozen or so firefighters were there to control the blaze.
A spokesman for CFA Victoria said the car was on the side of the road and the fire was believed to have been caused by someone trying to start the car.
"It's definitely not the result of a motor vehicle accident," the spokesman said.
"The car was on petrol and flames were fully visible."
The first vehicle reached the scene at 7.12pm, 15 minutes after dispatch, and the fire was under control nine minutes later at 7.21pm
