One house was lost but more than 100 homes were saved by firefighters and local residents as a bushfire in the state's south threatened the outskirts of the town of Bridgewater.
Tasmania Fire Service district officer Ken Burns saysthe fire's 3 km front has moved 22 km since yesterday afternoon.
Mr Burns says erratic wind and inaccessible areas had hindered firefighters.
Meanwhile, four homes were lost in a fire at Middleton, south of Hobart.
Mr Burns says that fire has burnt almost 50 hectares, but is now contained, if not yet fully controlled.
A separate fire in the Darling Ranges had flare-ups caused by wind gusts of over 100 kph.
Crews are patrolling the containment lines on that fire on a 24-hour basis.
Winds were expected to ease tonight in the region, taking some pressure off fire crews.
A scrub fire burning at Lindisfarne on the outskirts of Hobart closed the Tasman Highway.
And firefighters managed to contain smaller blazes at Stormlea, Austins Ferry, Cradoc and Cygnet.
