Emergency crews attend four swift water rescues overnight

QUEENSLAND Fire and Rescue Service has been called to four swift water rescue incidents since 9pm Saturday.

The first occurred at Rosedale after reports of cars stuck in flood waters.

The Gladstone crew was unable to access the job and left it in the hands of Bundaberg emergency services.

On the way to the Rosedale job the QFRS was called to another incident involving three people stuck up a tree.

It's believed three occupants of a vehicle climbed up the tree after becoming stuck in floodwater.

One occupant managed to find safe ground, with emergency services rescuing the remaining two.

The third rescue was at Granite Creek, about 40km south of Miriam Vale, as a man's car was engulfed by floodwater.

Between 2-3am Sunday emergency services also rescued people from vehicles that had driven into floodwater at Gladstone Mt Larcom Rd, Gladstone.
