Grass and trees were burnt in two fires at Moama yesterday afternoon.
The fires, in bush along the Murray River at the back of Horseshoe Lagoon, were only 100m apart.
Moama Rural Fire Service, Moama Fire and Rescue and Echuca Fire Brigade were called to the fires at 4.13pm and they were under control 30 minutes later.
However, mopping up and blacking out was expected to go into the evening.
While the cause of the fires was not known yesterday afternoon, NSW Rural Fire Service Murray East 3 deputy group captain Phil Masters asked people to be vigilant and careful.
‘‘The thing with these (fires in the bush) is they go up real quick,’’ he said.
