Fire danger high for Central Queensland

RESIDENTS are urged to be vigilant with heightened fire conditions predicted for parts of Central Queensland over the next few days.

A very high fire danger is forecast for the Central Highlands and Coalfields today, with the rating high for Capricornia and the Central West.

Fire crews yesterday continued to fight a fire burning off Mount Steven Rd at Byfield, which flared again about 7.30pm on Sunday.

Rural Fire Service Queensland Central regional manager Brian Smith said with strong winds across the region, any fires that did start would be fast-moving and unpredictable.

He said landowners who had conducted hazard reduction burns should ensure the fires had been properly extinguished.

With fire activity ramping up across the state, Mr Smith said it was crucial that residents did all they could to prepare their homes and properties.
