It has prompted further warnings from RACQ for affected residents to heed the warnings of authorities.
The Courier Mail reported “very high” fire conditions continued with the chance of a cyclone forming, adding to extreme weather conditions.
RACQ spokesperson Kirsty Clinton urged residents to stay up-to-date with warnings from authorities and to leave if they were instructed to.
“If you’re asked to evacuate, please do so – the authorities have come to this decision for a reason and they’ve decided it’s too late to stay and fight,” Ms Clinton said.
“Now is the time for people in affected areas to gather their emergency kits if they haven’t already and to enact their Bushfire Survival Plan.
“We want to make sure no one gets left behind, so please also don’t forget your pets and check on your elderly neighbours too.”
Ms Clinton urged motorists in the region not ordered to evacuate to consider postponing non-essential travel.
“Anyone who doesn’t need to be on the roads should help keep them clear for the authorities,” she said.
“There are several road closures in place across the region and you can stay up to date with the latest traffic changes via the RACQ Road Conditions website.”
