A watch and act warning has been issued for an out of control grass fire burning along the Hume Highway at Goulburn.

The Rural Fire Service has confirmed that there is a fire in a paddock near the Hume Highway in South Goulburn.

Police and the fire services are on scene, however motorists have been warned to avoid the area as smoke is smothering the road making visibility extremely low.


The Hume Highway has been closed in both directions.

A total fire ban is in place today as a heatwave hits the state.
