THE Wimmera has come through the weekend's hot conditions unscathed but authorities have warned residents to brace for more warm weather this week.
Horsham Incident Control Centre incident controller Russell Manning said crews had not responded to any fires on Friday or at the weekend.
The mercury peaked at 44 degrees in Horsham on Friday afternoon and the Bureau of Meteorology has predicted temperatures will hit 40 degrees today.
Mr Manning said the Horsham ICC, at the Grains Innovation Park, was prepared for any fires should they occur.
"We have Department of Sustainability and Environment, Parks Victoria and CFA teams ready to go," he said.
"There are four fire towers open early and finishing late on days like this, and we also have fire-spotting aircraft and contract bulldozers on standby as well as our own.
"We have provided some resources for fires in the south-west of the state but we have been very fortunate there have been no fires across the Wimmera."
Mr Manning said Parks Victoria and DSE crews were monitoring key recreational places in the region to ensure people complied with campfire and other regulations.
"There has been a high level of non-compliance around Rocklands. We have been finding many visitors don't have sufficient clearing around
their fires, which is a concern," he said.
"You light the fire, you own the fire."
Mr Manning encouraged people to be aware of weather conditions and stay informed this week.
"Also be aware of fire restrictions," he said.
"There is a lot of smoke in southern Victoria from bushfires in Tasmania. The smoke is visible around the Grampians so people need to be aware of that."
The CFA website and Fireready app for mobile phones experienced difficulties on Friday due to high user demand.
Victorian Fire Services Commissioner Craig Lapsley said the CFA had since increased the capacity of the site.
