Storm sparks blazes

LIGHTNING started six fires on the Granite Belt on Saturday evening but quick action by urban and rural fire brigades had all of them extinguished within two hours.

The first fire was reported at 5.31pm on Saturday at Eukey between the Girraween and Bald Rock national parks.

Four units responded to the fire, including the Wallangarra urban brigade and all firefighters were off the scene by 7.48pm.

The Queensland Fire and Rescue Service received a call to a fire at Nundubbermere Rd at 7.29pm where the fire was made safe within two hours after burning manure pads threatened to re-ignite grass.

There were other fires on Saturday night at Mt Hutton Rd at Greenlands, Fletcher, Severnlea and a second fire at Eukey.

One crew was patrolling at Eukey yesterday morning with all other fires declared safe.
