Crews to spend the night monitoring blaze burning near Upper Coomera

FIREFIGHTERS will remain on the scene of a bushfire burning at Wongawallen, around eight kilometers west of Upper Coomera on the northern Gold Coast.

Crews have spent the afternoon bulldozing fire breaks along the eastern flank of the blaze and blackening-out bushland between the blaze and around 100 homes scattered throughout the area.

It’s currently burning in inaccessible scrub near Lanes Road, Elevation Drive and Upper Ormeau Road.


The latest advice from the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services states the blaze is not posing any threat to property at this time.

Residents are being urged to stay up to date with the latest information and warnings by listening to their local radio station or by visiting the Rural Fire Service website.
