This fire cost more than $100,000

MORE than $100,000 went up in flames yesterday at Boyne Island.

Queensland Fire and Rescue and Police services were called to Dennis Street, Boyne Island in the early hours of Sunday to attend a burning trailer.

The trailer contained electronic goods and was awaiting a pick-up from a prime mover.

Detective Sergeant Alan Cook said the blaze was apparently caused by a leak of dangerous goods and estimated the damage to be upwards of $100,000.

“There is no suggestion it was intentionally lit,” Detective Sergeant Cook said.

Three fire units were at the scene at around 3.30am and extinguished the fire by 4am.

The trailer was held in Boyne Island while on its way to Emerald from Brisbane.

In other emergency services news, a man was escorted by Queensland Ambulance Service to a Bundaberg Hospital after receiving severe burns to his feet.

The Volunteer Marine Rescue Round Hill branch received a call at about 4.30pm on Saturday that alerted them to a fire near the Clews Point camping area near Pancake Creek, 1770.

A short time later, the VMR was notified of the injured camper and escorted an ambulance officer by rescue boat to his aid.

It is not known how the man sustained the burns.

He was brought back to Agnes Water and then taken by road to Bundaberg for treatment.
