Residents told to prepare to leave

Queensland fire services have issued a “prepare to leave” warning for the Kingfisher Bay Resort and Village region on Fraser Island.

A bushfire is burning near Dundonga Creek, east of the resort and village, through to Cornwells Road in the south of Fraser Island.

Firefighters are continuing to battle the blaze, assisted by water bombing aircraft.

People in the area are being directed by Queensland Fire and Emergency Services and Queensland Parks and Wildlife Services to prepare to leave.

“Multiple fire crews are working to contain the fire but firefighters may not be able to protect every property,” QFES said.

Locals are being urged to listen to local radio or check the Rural Fire Service website for further updates.
