A hot-air balloon has landed in the front yard of a Melbourne home this morning.

Emergency authorities guided the balloon down between power lines on the property at Hawthorn.

The ballooning company says wind conditions were very light and the pilot decided to land while he still had fuel.

There were 10 people on board and the balloon had been flying for around two hours.
