Crews battling flames after car fire spreads to GC bushland

Fire crews are currently on the scene of a fire burning in bushland at Kingsholme.

The blaze first started as a car fire on Upper Ormeau Road around 12.25pm on Wednesday.

A Queensland Fire and Rescue spokesperson has told myGC that the blaze has since spread to nearby bushland.


Two fire crews are on scene working to extinguish the flames.

The QFES spokesperson says the blaze has been brought under control, however crews are creating containment lines and continuing to monitor the blaze.

It comes after a grass fire which broke out in the centre median strip of the Pacific Motorway at Helensvale earlier today, causing traffic chaos.

That blaze has since been extinguished and delays have eased.
