Where fires are burning in Gladstone region

THREE bushfires are currently burning in the Gladstone region, causing visible smoke haze in occasionally gusty conditions.

“Motorists should use caution and drive to conditions.

“If you believe your property is under threat, you should call triple-0 immediately.”
