Hinterland residents warned about planned burn taking place today

Hinterland residents are being warned of some smoke in the area today, with crews to conduct a planned burn in the area today.

Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service will be working in the vicinity of Beacon Road in North Tamborine, weather permitting.

It’s all part of the annual hazard reduction/conservation management program for parks and forests.


“The aim of this burn is to reduce the volume of forest fuels and to create a mosaic pattern of burnt and unburnt areas,” the advice reads.

Residents in nearby areas are being assured not to be alarmed if they notice smoke in the area.

Smoke could also reduce visibility on the roads today, so motorists are being urged to drive to the conditions.
