Firefighters have responded to a coal fire this afternoon on Thompson’s Road in Cranbourne West.
Fire crews including eight fire trucks were called to the incident at 12.45pm where it’s believed a large coal stack was burning.
A CFA media spokesperson said the fire was under control within 30 minutes and the threat of it spreading was low.
A message from CFA was issued saying there was no immediate threat to the community and smoke may be visible from nearby roads and communities.
CFA say coal stack fires are not likely to spread into grassland but will generate a lot of smoke.
Thompsons Road has been closed in both directions.
