A bushfire that caused major damage to the Tasmanian town of Dunalley on Friday has spread to surrounding areas and destroyed dozens of other properties.
Fires around the state have destroyed at least 85 properties with around 70 of those homes in Dunalley.
Conditions across southern Tasmania on Saturday were cooler than on Friday when the temperature reached 41.8C – the highest since records began in 1883.
But TFS spokesman John Holloway said the fire danger was far from over.
"Those fires overnight did lose a bit of intensity, but generally we've had a lot of firefighters doing active firefighting," he told ABC on Saturday.
"While those fires did abate, they're still doing a bit of damage."
