Lightning strike sets trees alight, sparks Glen Eden bushfire
FIRE crews battled a blaze in the early hours this morning.
Shortly after midnight, three Queensland Fire and Emergency Service crews responded to reports of trees on fire.
A triple zero caller told fireys several trees at the back of a Glen Eden estate had caught fire after a lightning strike, sparking a bushfire near Giles St.
Fireys were able to extinguish the flames by 2.45am after which they dampened down hot spots until 3.15am.
A QFES spokesman said that blaze had not directly threatened nearby properties.
