RFS fire control operations officer Brett Taylor said the burn got away "a little bit" and into some of the grass on the property on the city's north-western outskirts, but the owner did everything correctly.
"He was on site relatively quickly and got it under control," Mr Taylor said.
"The RFS is assisting him with the final mop-up."
Smoke from the fire was visible from Llanarth.
Mr Taylor said the pile burning on the property was likely to continue for a couple more days.
The Bushfire Danger Period will run from October 1 to March 31.
