Firefighters are working to extinguish a small grass fire in Mitchell.

The fire is burning through grass near the Canberra Aero Club at Hoskins Street Mitchell.

The Emergency Services Agency says the fire is under control, is moving slowly, and poses little risk to life and property.

The agency says the current fire danger level, which is at low to moderate, means the fire can be easily controlled.

ACT Fire and Rescue have two units on the scene to fight the fire.
