QFES is­sued an emer­gency alert on Wed­nes­day to warn res­i­dents of what ex­perts have called the worst bush­fire con­di­tions in the state’s his­tory.

Mayor Rachel Cham­bers said un­prece­dented fire and heat­wave con­di­tions along with high winds meant fires should be ex­pected in the com­ing days.

“Prop­er­ties are not un­der di­rect threat at this time,” Cr Cham­bers said.

“Res­i­dents should be alert but not alarmed.

“En­sure you have a Bush­fire Sur­vival Plan in place and keep up to date on cur­rent con­di­tions.”
