Mt Coolum wildfire

29 November 2016

Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) will continue to manage a wildfire that commenced on Monday morning at Mt Coolum National Park, with the assistance of QFES, rural fire brigades and the SES. 

At present there is no threat to homes or property, however residents can expect to see some hot spots around the mountain, particularly throughout the heat of the day, and possible periods of significant smoke.

Residents are advised to refrain from hanging clothes outdoors and keep windows and doors closed to avoid smoke effects. 

While smoke impacts are not expected to be a major concern, residents with respiratory issues should remain indoors with windows and doors closed and air conditioning on, or consider vacating the area temporarily if they are concerned. 

Crews will remain on site monitoring the movement of the fire as it recedes down the lower slopes during Tuesday into the evening and throughout Wednesday. 

QPWS would like to advise visitors and local residents that the walking track to the Summit is closed and will remain so until at least Wednesday afternoon. 

QPWS would like to thank residents for their cooperation.
