A fast moving fire fanned by strong winds engulfed trees and grassland behind the BP station at the Four Mile, 7km south of Cooma, on Tuesday afternoon, threatening a number of buildings.
Two NSW Fire and Rescue trucks and three Cooma Rural Fire Service brigade units quickly got the fire under control which started at 2pm.
Cooma Fire and Rescue NSW captain Chris Reeks said no buildings were lost but two electricity poles caught fire, which Country Energy will need to replace.
Motorists had to contend with thick smoke and poor visibility on the Snowy Mountains Highway, however the highway remained open.
Fire crews were mopping up and putting out hot spots until after 4.45pm on Tuesday and continued the next day with flareups feared due to the strong winds forecast on Wednesday.
The fire is estimated to have burnt about 10ha of grassland.
The cause of the fire cannot be confirmed until the Rural Fire Service has completed an investigation.
