Greater Shepparton, Mitchell Shire, Moira Shire, Strathbogie Shire and Benalla Rural City will all be under a Fire Danger Period from Monday.
The CFA declared the period today, which means fires cannot be lit in open air without a written permit from CFA or from a Municipal Fire Prevention Officer.
Fire Danger Periods are based on local conditions and take into account fuel moisture, fuel loads, grassland curing, weather and rainfall.
CFA Hume Regional Director Alan Davies said the CFA expects people to follow the fire restrictions.
"Fire restrictions are in place for a very good reason - to prevent fires from starting. Preventing fires is something that every member of the community should see as their responsibility," he said.
