Areas close to the fire include Undercliffe near Liston and Rivertree. A spokeswoman for the Queensland Fire and Emergency Service said at 3pm Sunday the NSW Rural Fire Service had requested assistance from two Queensland brigades and crews from Sugarloaf and Ballandean brigades headed to the fire. The Queensland crews were not on scene on Monday. Almost 200 hectares of grass was burnt.
