A firefighter has been flown to Melbourne after receiving pelvic injuries at the scene of a fire this morning.

Ambulance Victoria spokesperson John Mullen said the man, aged in his 40s, was at the scene of a small fire at the Bendigo-Murchison Rd in Moora when the incident occurred just before 2am.

"It appears he has fallen from the back of a vehicle and has been clipped by the wheel," he said.

He was taken by road ambulance to Bendigo Hospital with pelvic injuries, and was this morning airlifted to the Royal Melbourne Hospital in a serious but stable condition.
