1/10/2013 9:40:21 AM
Eight Queensland Fire and Rescue Service (QFRS) crews continue to monitor and patrol a large bushfire which has been burning in the Tin Can Bay area for several days. The fire is still burning within containment lines and there is no threat to the community. A fire spotter aircraft is scheduled to conduct air reconnaissance later this morning. The smoke haze in the area has mostly cleared, however residents are advised to keep doors and windows closed and medications close by if they suffer from a respiratory condition. The community should remain alert and if they feel their home is under threat, phone Triple Zero (000) immediately.
