Allora grain fire still burning 24 hours after ignition
Warwick fire crews have returned to the scene of an ongoing Allora business fire, more than 24 hours after the initial blaze started.
Three Warwick urban and rural crews will continue to contain the blaze this morning after staying on scene overnight, according to a QFES spokeswoman.
“We’re still just working to contain the fire and dampening down hot spots,” she said.
“There’s still little minor pockets of fire.”
The QFES spokeswoman said until the fire was out, QFES crews could not investigate what started the blaze.
It is not believed to be suspicious.
Chloe Dwan, daughter-in-law of owners Terry and Sharon Dwan, took to Facebook to express her upset.
“Breaks my heart. My in-laws have worked so hard for many years into that place. So sorry Terry and Sharon,” she wrote.
The pair operate from three locations, including an Allora mill and retail location and a Springwood warehouse.
