Fire burning along Glenlyon Rd

Video: Traffic stopped as fire burns near Glenlyon Rd

A WILD fire is burning close to Glenlyon Rd near the Gladstone BMX track, heading in a northerly direction towards the train underpass.

All traffic on Glenlyon Rd has been stopped from Sun Valley Rd towards the Dalrymple Dr roundabout.

Firefighters are currently on the scene, back burning along the left hand side of Glenlyon Rd to control the fire. 

The fire is not posing a threat to any buildings at this stage.

But with the wind blowing in the direction it is, the fire could jump Glenlyon Rd and move closer to properties.

Seven crews are at the scene. Smoke will be visible in Toolooa, Sun Valley and surrounding areas.

The fire started just after 3pm.
