The incident was first reported at 2.23pm near to the village of Shulishader on the Eye Peninsula.
Firefighters used four main jets with two appliances from Stornoway, one from Shawbost and a further appliance from Ness raced to provide assistance.
A crew from Great Bernera joined the fight using beaters and knapsack, with fire control stating “good progress” was being made early this evening.
A fire spokeswoman said: “Crews have requested the assistance of the hydro to isolate the power source as the fire is burning near power lines.
“The wind has changed direction and is blowing smoke into the village.
“Crews are tackling two fronts of fire.”
