Bribie Island Bush Fires

To stay up-to-date with the bush fires on Bribie Island - http://www.ourbribie.com.au/

Bribie Island has had a fiery past few days with raging bush fires coming within metres of houses in the White Patch area.

Emergency services escalated their warnings at one stage to watch-and-act, while also closing all camp grounds on the Island till further notice.

Some residences were encouraged to voluntarily evacuate and the rest told to have a fire-action-plan in place.

A large amount of back-burning was undertaken today, and while any immediate threat has subsided, a change in weather conditions could quickly heighten danger.

A large contingent of Forestry workers, emergency personal and equipment including helicopter water-bombers are working around the clock.
