Multiple Queensland Fire and Emergency Services and Rural Fire Service Queensland crews continue their efforts to fight a large bushfire in the vicinity of Brown Lake, North Stradbroke Island.
Fire crews were successful in protecting properties in the Myora Springs and Gatumba Street area yesterday and worked throughout the night to strengthen containment lines in and around these areas.
Water bombing operations commenced at 7am today and is concentrated on fires which are unreachable by crews on the ground.
There is currently no threat to property, however the fire is producing a large smoke haze.
Residents are advised to keep their doors and windows closed and, if they suffer from respiratory conditions, to keep medication close by.
Motorists in the area are advised to drive with caution and check with Council and the Queensland Police Service as there is restricted access to some roads and camp grounds on the island.
Motorists are also urged to drive carefully as a result of increased numbers of native animals on the roads. The animals, including wallabies and koalas, have been displaced by the bushfire and are moving to new locations.
The evacuation centre at Dunwich Community Hall is now closed.
Ferry services to and from Straddie are back to normal.
