Wait and watch conditions in Carmila

Update at 4pm - 29 November 2018

The potential threat of local bushfires is being closely monitored as unprecedented weather conditions continue to impact the Isaac region.

High fire danger warnings remain current as two fires in the Carmila West area continue to burn with no relief from the hot, dry weather expected for the remainder of the week.

The Isaac Local Disaster Management Group (LDMG) remains in a stand up level of activation despite the fires currently being contained in the Carmila range area with no threat to any properties at this stage.

Chair of the Isaac LDMG, Mayor Anne Baker said the unpredictability of the weather conditions and fires near the affected part of the region remain a cause for concern.

“We are in regular communication with Queensland Fire and Emergency personnel as well as district and state disaster management groups to assess the situation,” Mayor Baker said.

“As hot temperatures and westerly winds continue to contribute to dangerous fire conditions, it is very important for us not to become complacent.

“I want to reinforce that we are facing unprecedented weather conditions and are asking all residents to be alert and to prepare their bushfire safety plan at this time.”
