Crews rush to second palm tree fire in Surfers Paradise schoolies zone

Emergency crews have rushed to the heart of the schoolies district this morning, following reports the top of a palm tree is on fire.

It’s burning on the corner of Orchid Avenue and Caville Avenue, and broke out just after 10.00am.

Only one fire fighter crew is on scene, and expects to have the small blaze under control quickly.


Though they can’t quite say what’s sparked the flames.

It’s understood this isn’t the first time crews have been called to a palm tree fire in Surfers Paradise, with a similar instance called into authorities last week.

It comes as the second week of schoolies celebrations hits the half way mark.
