Residents asked to be careful as region's fire danger rises

THE Queensland Fire and Rescue Service is urging residents across Central Queensland to be extra cautious and vigilant ,with a high grassfire danger rating predicted over the coming days.

QFRS regional manager of rural operations for Central Region Brian Smith said urban and rural firefighters were well prepared to fight potential fires, but fire prevention was pertinent.

"Temperatures will be high and relative humidity will be low, which can make it difficult to contain vegetation fires which flare up, so we're asking residents to take extra care," Mr Smith said.
