Vegetation fires rage across Fraser Coast

FIRE crews have been called out to two vegetation fires burning across the Fraser Coast.

Eight fire crews have attended a fire burning near Maryborough Cooloola Rd on Boonooroo Plains, which broke out after 12.11am this morning.

Two crews are attending a separate fire burning on Torbanlea Pialba Rd and Leos Rd in Walligan. Three more vehicles are en route.

Residents who suffer from a respiratory condition should keep their windows and doors closed and keep medication nearby.

Motorists are advised to drive cautiously due to smoke.

More to come.
