UPDATE: Maryborough-Hervey Bay Rd will be open by 6.30pm after it was cut due to heavy smoke from a bushfire.

The bushfire forced the closure of the Maryborough-Hervey Bay Rd near Sunshine Acres from noon until about 6pm.

The Maryborough exit on the main roundabout, which also links the roads to River Heads and Torbanlea, was blocked by police.

Drivers were asked to avoid the area.

Crews were first called to the blaze just before noon and are currently fighting the fire and working to protect properties in the area.

Multiple fire crews and police are on the scene.

Drivers are advised to exercise caution and drive to conditions as visibility is low in surrounding areas.

If residents believe their home is under threat, they are advised to phone 000 immediately.
