Permitted burns in five areas and one fire that got away

RURAL Fire Brigade units from Glenlyon and Mallow were quickly on the scene after a grass fire broke out on the side of the road at Pikedale.

The fire was at the intersection of roads between Stanthorpe, Inglewood and Texas.

The call for help was made at 2.30pm.

A spokeswoman for the Queensland Fire and Emergency Service said the rural fire units and firefighters had the fire out by 3.55pm.

The communication centre for the QFES was busy yesterday afternoon as five rural fire brigades radioes in with permitted burns in the Amiens, Karara, Nobby, Mt Tully and Glen Niven areas.

There were no problems with any of the permitted burns on Sunday afternoon.
