QUEENS­LAND Fire and Emer­gency Ser­vices were called out to a prop­erty just out­side Gooroolba at 5.30am on Sun­day af­ter re­ports of a fire in a hay shed on Biggen­den Gooroolba Road.

A QFES spokes­women said a fire in the hay shed looked to have two ve­hi­cles in­volved.

“It looks like there was a ve­hi­cle and a mower in­volved in that fire,” the spokes­woman said.

“It was ex­tin­guished just af­ter 6am and we stayed on the scene to help make it safe then it was handed back to the prop­erty own­ers at 7.30am.”

Two QFES crews at­tended the fire.

“The shed had some so­lar pan­els on top which can present ex­tra is­sues,” Mr Har­ri­son said.

“Be­cause they are very hard to iso­late the power from es­pe­cially dur­ing the day when they are gen­er­at­ing their most power.

“The sit­u­a­tion was taken care off in quick time be­cause our crews got in there and did a great job and did it quickly.”

In­ves­ti­ga­tions into the cause of the fire are still on­go­ing.

“At this stage is is very dif­fi­cult to de­ter­mine what might have started the fire and that re­mains un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion,” Mr Har­ri­son said.
