Bongaree (Bribie Island) - bushfire
Two Queensland Fire and Rescue Service (QFRS) crews will monitor a bushfire burning near the southern tip of Bribie Island, on First Avenue, Bongaree, overnight. Firefighters completed backburning in the area this afternoon and the fire is burning safely within containment lines. More crews will return in the morning to check on the fire, which crews were called to at approximately noon yesterday. Smoke from the fire has drifted to parts of Brisbane but is expected to dissipate throughout the evening. Residents with respiratory illnesses are advised to keep windows and doors closed, remain indoors and keep medication close by. Motorists are advised to drive to conditions.
