Bushfire warning level: WATCH AND ACT
 
Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) advises there is a bushfire west of Narangba and conditions could get worse. 
 
Residents to the east of Phillips Road (off Raynbird Road) need to be ready to follow your bushfire survival plan. If you do not have a plan, or intend to leave, you should be ready to leave the area because the situation could get worse quickly.
 
Currently as at 4.15pm Monday 2 December, a fast-moving fire is travelling in an easterly direction from west of Alf Dobson Road towards Narangba. It is expected to impact properties on Alf Dobson Road, between Schultz Road, Raynbird Road and Phillip Road within the next thirty minutes. 
 
There is a separate warning for residents to the west of Phillips Road, along Raynbird Road and Alf Dobson Road. Residents in this area should follow the instructions given in the Narangba warning. 
 
Fire crews are working to contain the fire but firefighters may not be able to protect every property. You should not expect a firefighter at your door.
 
Residents choosing to leave the area should travel along Alf Dobson Road in any direction while it is still clear to do so.
 
For residents who have evacuated and are unable to shelter with friends and family, an evacuation centre will be open from 4.30pm at the Burpengary Community Hall, 101 Station Road, Burpengary.
 
People in the area will be affected by smoke, which will reduce visibility and air quality.
 
Call Triple Zero (000) immediately if you believe your property is under threat.
