One home has been destroyed in the fires burning across Tasmania, crews have confirmed.
The property, near Miena in central Tasmania, was confirmed as lost by the Tasmanian Fire Service on Tuesday night.
The view from Tasmania's Tahune Airwalk might also be tainted for years as the tourism attraction and nearby wilderness remains under threat from wildfire.
The site was closed again on Tuesday as one of several uncontrolled bushfires raging across the island state moved closer.
Visitors to the site can usually stand among the tree tops on a steel walkway, admiring the nearby wilderness and Huon River, but some of that outlook has likely already been singed.
The Tasmanian Fire Service says the fire is only metres away.
It is one of seven areas with emergency warnings in place.
TFS state fire controller Bruce Byatt said of the 49 fires burning across the state, 32 were causing concern.
"The Tahune Airwalk has been closed down and we're focusing our efforts and energies on trying to protect the heritage sensitive areas," Mr Byatt said.
To date, there have been reports of fencing damage, he added.
Residents in the line of fire are being told to be on alert for embers, smoke and ash and dozens of people have already moved to evacuation centres.
A major fire is still burning near Gell River, northwest of Hobart, scorching more than 20,000 hectares of wilderness since it started on December 28 with another blaze near Lake Fergus in the state's centre.
Tasmania is bracing for a run of hot and dry days this week, which will create damning fire weather conditions.
Strong and gusty wind conditions are predicted for Friday and have fire crews worried.
In the meantime, Mr Byatt said fire crews would focus on a combination of containment and being ready to hit new fires fast.
"It's really about us setting triggers and when the triggers are reached, shifting our response from an offensive to a more defensive or ready to roll method of attack," he said.
Specialist fire personnel from interstate and New Zealand are helping tackle the scores of blazes.
The Bureau of Meteorology predicts warm conditions across Tasmania this week, with rain bringing a hint of relief in the south on Wednesday, before temperatures soar again.
