Fire danger high in Isaac

ISAAC residents are being urged to be vigilant with a high and very high fire danger rating across the region.

Isaac Local Disaster Management Group Chair and Isaac Mayor Anne Baker said November has been dry and warm and temperatures have been reaching high thirties.

"Don't play with fire; the risks are too high under these conditions,” she said.

"Unattended or mismanaged fires may create sparks and cause fires to spread quickly.

"I urge residents to be alert and report any vegetation fires to Triple Zero immediately.”

There has been an increase in fire activity in parts of the region with a vegetation fire currently near Suttor Development Road being monitored by Queensland Fire and Emergency Services.

"Do not wait for the worst to happen. Lower the risk to your family and community,” Mayor Baker said.

"Bushfires can threaten anyone not just bushfire prone areas. All residents can stay up to date with all current bushfire activity.”
