Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) advises there is a bushfire in Byfield and conditions could get worse.
You need to be ready to follow your bushfire survival plan. If you do not have a plan, or intend to leave, you should be ready to leave the area because the situation could get worse quickly.
Currently as at 5pm Friday 6 September, a fast-moving fire is travelling from Shoalwater Bay in a south-easterly direction towards Byfield. The fire is likely to impact Yaxleys Road, Cahills Road, Castle Rock Road and Broughton Road.
Fire crews are working to contain the fire but firefighters may not be able to protect every property. You should not expect a firefighter at your door.
Waterbombing operations are underway to support crews on the ground.
People in the area will be affected by smoke, which will reduce visibility and air quality.
