A south coast property owner has lost a shed and excavator worth $150,000 after a burn off he was conducting jumped containment lines.

The CFS is urging anyone burning off fuel loads in the lead up to fire danger season, to make sure you have a large enough break around the flames, or like this Myponga local, you could see the blaze quickly spread to nearby buildings.

The CFS were able to contain the blaze which broke out just after 5pm on Tuesday afternoon.
