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.
