UPDATE 5.33pm: The grassfire in Timmering has been declared safe.

Rochester fire captain Mick Hassell said the brigades fought the blaze from the eastern side first so it would not spread to the bushland.

“(If it reached the trees) we’d have been there until tomorrow,” he said.

He said the firefighters prevented the fire from spreading from the green lucerne paddock to the adjoining dry paddock.

Mr Hassell said the fire ignited after the farmer used a slasher
