5PM: Three children have been treated by Ambulance Victoria after being impacted by the fires at Blampied.
In a live press conference this afternoon, fire services commissioner Craig Lapsley said as the fire headed towards bushland, it ran past Rutherford Park, a school retreat.
"School-aged children were on holidays and doing holiday activities," Mr Lapsley said.
"Three of those children have been treated by Ambulance Victoria for smoke inhalation and problems with smoke, dust and debris around their eyes.
"None of them are critical, and that is a good thing."
4.25PM: The CFA has downgraded the emergency fire warnings at Blampied to a Watch and Act.
