Smoke warning for eight suburbs
Words by Nick Crockford

A smoke warning has been issued for Narangba and surrounding suburbs due to a bushfire near the industrial area.

The warning was issued just before 10.30am and two crews are reported to be onsite tackling the fire near Mineral Sizer Court.

Suburbs which may be impacted are Burpengary, Burpengary East, Dakabin, Deception Bay, Kurwongbah, Morayfield, Narangba and North Lakes.

No properties are reported to be at risk, but smoke may affect roads, impact visibility when driving and maker it hard for some people to breathe.

Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) is advising those in the area to stay inside and close windows and doors.

Those with respiratory medication are advised by QFES to “keep it close by”, avoid driving through smoke if possible and watch out for firefighters in the area.

QFES says drones should not be flown around the fire as they impact air operations.
