Caravan, garage erupt into flames in busy night for Coast firies

It’s been a busy night for firies on the Gold Coast, with crews called to two fires just an hour apart.

The garage of a home on Murtha Drive in Elanora erupted into flames just after 9.30pm.

A Queensland Fire and Emergency Service spokesperson said it was “fully involved” when crews arrived on scene.


According to the spokesperson, it took them around 20 minutes to extinguish before they were called to another inferno around 10.30pm.

A caravan caught fire while parked on Nerang Broadbeach Road in Nerang, with the blaze “well-involved” upon arrival.

A photo of the fire, obtained by myGC, shows the caravan completely gutted by flames.

Fortunately, no one was injured in either blaze.
