Two campfires lit during ban

FIREFIGHTERS were called to two campfires that were lit at the Calliope campgrounds yesterday while a fire ban was in place.

Two crews were called to the Old Bruce Highway, Calliope, just after 6pm, with one campfire apparent when they arrived.

Upon arrival, firefighters discovered a second campfire burning on the northern side of the Calliope River.

Both fires were extinguished and campers were notified of the fire ban.

A fire ban remains in place for the Gladstone region until midnight tomorrow.
