Fire danger hits severe
FIRE crews across the Maranoa remain on high alert today as hot, dry and windy conditions come together to create a severe fire danger.
While no fire bans are in place, and no fire permits have been granted, the Rural Fire Service is keeping a close eye on the weather.
“On days like today, grinding or welding can start a fire, and because of the weather conditions, fire behaviour becomes extremely erratic and it will be difficult to control,” Queensland Fire and Emergency Service (Roma Command) inspector Goetz Graf said.
“We really want people to take note of the fire danger rating signs, understand what they mean, and how important it is that we adjust our daily activities based on the fire danger rating.”
