The soap's cast and crew only returned from their Christmas break on Monday but managed to shoot the scene at the earliest opportunity.
Channel 5 confirmed to Digital Spy that the scene will feature characters Sheila Canning (Colette Mann), David Tanaka (Takaya Honda) and Aaron Brennan (Matt Wilson).
The scene will show the characters discussing the bushfires and a fundraiser auction Sheila is organising.
At the end of the episode, viewers will be directed to a page on the Channel 5 website where they can find out more information.
Fans online had been calling for the Australian soap to address the bushfires in some way.
It's extremely rare for Neighbours to edit in a scene to an episode reflecting a real-life event.
Previously, the soap made reference to the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011.
Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 (UK) and 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).
