Conditions in Carmila improve overnight
Weather conditions in Carmila have eased overnight with a small number of residents voluntarily evacuated to Broadsound Coastal Care facility last night returning home this morning.
Mayor Anne Baker, chair of the Isaac LDCC, said two fires are still burning in the Carmila West Road area however both are currently contained with fire breaks in place and no threats to any properties.
“The total fire ban is still in place across the Isaac region and conditions will continue to be monitored closely throughout the day by the Isaac LDCC,” Mayor Baker said.
“These are unprecedented weather conditions and I encourage our residents across the region to consider their bushfire safety plan at this time.

“Fire fighters have been working around the clock to contain blazes throughout affected areas in Queensland but it’s important to understand crews may not be able to protect every property.
"As a community, it is up to each individual to do their part in ensuring they are as prepared as they possibly can be for whatever potential emergency situations may lie ahead.
“We need everyone to get ready, stay ready and be prepared just in case.”
