The Observer - - NEWS -

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.
