A bushfire was out of control yesterday about 65km east of Cosmo Newberry Mission in the Shire of Laverton.

The Department of Fire and Emergency Services issued a warning to people travelling on, or near, Great Central Road after the blaze started to move closer to the road.

The fire, believed to be caused by lightning, has been burning for several days.

The DFES said there was no threat to lives or homes, but there was a large amount of smoke in the area.
