Dalveen bushfire under control

LATEST: A bushfire at Dalveen south of Warwick which srated early yesterday afternoon was brought under control by fire crews working well into last night.

The fire was reported as being spread over a large area of scrubby she-oak country south of Sorrento Road and was attended by a number of Rural Fire Brigade units including The Glen, Dalveen, Northern Granite Belt, Broadwater, Applethorpe and others.

Crew members said the fire was difficult to fight due to the thick scrub and kept getting away on them through some very dry grass which in places was very thick.

"At one stage, fire fighters were thigh deep in a swamp trying to stop the fire - which was roaring through bull rushes - from reaching Dalveen's water pumping station," one fire fighter said.

"It was saved due to extremely good co-operation between units fighting the fire from both sides.

"After back-burns restricted the fire, patrols were maintained throughout the night to ensure it remained under control."
