Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) advises there is a bushfire in Peregian Beach and conditions are getting worse.
Follow your bushfire survival plan now. If you do not have a plan, your safest option is to leave now if it is clear to do so. If you are not in the area, do not return, as conditions are too dangerous.
Currently as at 8.45am Wednesday 23 October, a fast moving fire is travelling in a northerly direction from the eastern side of David Low Way towards Lorikeet Drive, Peregian Beach. It is expected to impact Pitta Street, Stint Street, Petrel Street, Greenshank Street and residents south of Greenshank Street on Lorikeet Drive and Oriole Avenue by 9.00am. The fire could have a significant impact on the community.
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. Power, water, and mobile phone service may be lost.
People in the area will be affected by smoke, which will reduce visibility and air quality.
A place of refuge has been opened at Noosa Leisure Centre, 9 Wallace Drive Noosaville. Residents north of Pitta Street Street should evacuate in a northerly direction via David Low Way.
Call Triple Zero (000) immediately if you believe you are under threat.
