“Nearby residents may be affected by a smoke haze throughout the day,” QFES said in an alert.
“Residents are asked to close windows and doors, and if suffering from a respiratory condition, keep medications close by.”
Further north near Maryborough, a third bushfire at Woocoo was burning at Glenbar Road, with bulldozers and aircraft used to fight the blaze.
Then at midday, QFES issued a “stay informed” alert for a grass fire at Lowmead, north of Bundaberg, that was travelling from Stockbridge Road in a north-easterly direction towards Old Toweran Road.
The fires follow a spate of blazes across south-east Queensland on Saturday, including a grass fire at Yamanto, a vegetation fire at Conondale, and a larger fire at Johnstown north of Nanango.
High or very high fire ratings were in place for all of south-east Queensland on Sunday, with a fire ban imposed on the south-east on Thursday.
The ban, in place until at least Monday, covers the local government areas of Toowoomba, Southern Downs, Goondiwindi, Western Downs, Maranoa, Murweh, Quilpie, Bulloo, Paroo and Balonne.
