Fire crews on top of bushfires in the region

TWO bushfires in the region are continuing to be contained by fire crews.  

Yesterday afternoon seven crews were on scene at a large bushfire at Nine Mile Ck near Mount Morgan.  

The fire broke out Sunday and does not pose a threat to property. It is expected to burn within containment lines for a number of days.  

Meanwhile another bushfire near Kyonet and Crossley Sts at Razorback is burning within containment lines as well. 

A smoke haze has been affecting nearby residential areas and residents are advised to close windows and doors, and keep medication on hand if suffering from a respiratory illness.
