Victorian authorities will examine ways to allow fire affected property owners to return home sooner, after angry residents stormed roadblocks last week.
Premier Denis Napthine toured fire affected areas on Sunday and said while the state had made significant improvements in fire management since Black Saturday, there were still lessons to be learned.
The fires, which began a week ago have destroyed 45 homes and burnt more than 330,000.
"The good news is there have been no lives lost, no serious injuries and for every house that was lost I believe there are 10 to 20 that were saved," Dr Napthine told reporters in Kilmore, one of the towns threatened by the fires.
"I think one of the areas we can even learn further from this fire is about how we provide safe access for people back into fire affected areas, perhaps in a quicker turn around time."
A group from Wallan on Melbourne's northern fringes had climbed fences on Wednesday after roadblocks prevented them returning to their homes.
Dr Napthine, a former vet said he would also like animal health workers to be permitted to access fire affected areas.
Fire Services Commissioner Craig Lapsley said last week authorities were doing what they could to ensure the areas were safe and protected from looters.
Locals wishing to return to their fire-ravaged communities were being given wrist tags in a bid to limit looting.
Meanwhile, bushfires burning in the state's east are not yet under control.
Rainfalls of one to two millimetres and easing conditions have not subdued four blazes in East Gippsland, the Orbost Control Incident Centre reported on Sunday.
The largest of the fires not yet under control spans almost 130,000 hectares at the Goongerah-Deddick trail.
Firefighters are also working to control the Club Terrace-Goolengook River blaze and the Timbarra-Gil Groggin fire.
Light rains also had little effect on a three-kilometre fire burning at the open-cut coal mine at the Hazelwood Power Station in the Latrobe Valley.
But a smoke hazard alert on elevated carbon-monoxide levels has been downgraded to an advisory status.
