The Country Fire Authority is urging Victorians to "exercise extreme caution when burning off" as fire restrictions are lifted in the final parts of the state.
The Fire Danger Period ended across all parts of Victoria at 1.00am on Sunday.
CFA Chief Officer Jason Heffernan said it marked the official end to a "much milder bushfire season than the unprecedented fire season that ravaged East Gippsland and North Victoria in 2019/20."
However, he reminded Victorians that while the FDP was officially over it was still important to check conditions on the day of a burn-off.
"Fires can get out of control within minutes in dry and windy conditions, and the effects can be devastating - we want everyone to exercise extreme caution," he said.
"While light winds can help to disperse smoke, burn-offs should not be conducted if the wind speed is more than 10kph. This can be observed when twigs and leaves are in constant motion."
More than 6000 private landowner burn-offs were registered during the first week of April, though some were registered with an open date meaning the landowner will conduct the burn over more than one day or when conditions are suitable.
In addition to the burning of backyard heaps and outer urban small burn-offs, there are also widespread agricultural burn-offs occurring across most of the state.

CO Heffernan reminded people not to leave a burn-off unattended and to call 000 immediately if it gets out of control.
"People should have a fire plan and prepare for the event of fire, and never be complacent," he added.
CO Heffernan reiterated the importance of registering all burn-offs to reduce unnecessary call-outs for CFA brigades.
