A fast moving out-of-control fire is bearing down on the community of Boho, northeast of Melbourne.
The CFA says the fire, which is travelling in a northeasterly direction, is creating spot fires one kilometre ahead of itself.
More than 40 CFA tankers and five aircraft are fighting the blaze.
The CFA advises Boho resident that if they plan to leave, or do not have a survival plan, they should go now.
The Emergency Alert affects the area bounded by Harrys Creek Road, Hayes Road, Boho Church Road and School Road.
