RESIDENTS took prompt action to protect their homes in Leichhardt today after a grass fire broke out in Main St at 1pm.

Firefighters said they were bringing the fire under control at 6pm, but it was still burning in places.

Resident Kev Peters was one of those out the front of his home watering the ground in fear of the fire jumping across the road.

"Winds can blow cinders across into the house so I am taking precautions," he said.
