Fire at estate
FIRE crews battled a blaze in the early hours yesterday morning. Shortly after midnight, three Queensland Fire and Emergency Service crews responded to reports of trees on fire. A 000 caller told fireys several trees at the back of a Glen Eden estate had caught fire after a lightning strike, sparking a bushfire near Giles St. Firefighters were able to extinguish the flames by 2.45am after which they dampened down hotspots.
A QFES spokesman said that blaze had not directly threatened nearby properties.
