Fire rages towards Qld town of Ballandean

Sturgess said the risky spring fire conditions should be considered an "omen" or "warning" as to the damage bushfires may cause in the north eastern state over the summer months of December, January and February. Get Me Out Of Right here! fires proceed to rage in elements of Australia surrounding the set - nonetheless it's full steam forward for the programme's manufacturing.

The bushfire in the Gold Coast hinterland caused extensive damage to the historic Binna Burra Lodge complex.

Residents in Lower Beechmont were also told that if they didn't have a plan, their safest option was to leave as a fast-travelling fire approached.

Queensland Fire and Emergency Services predictive services inspector Andrew Sturgess says the fire danger weather has never been as severe so early in spring.

Further south, at least 13 homes have been destroyed so far as crews worked overnight to keep the most unsafe blaze under control in the Gold Coast hinterland.

Acting Premier Jackie Trad said the fires had claimed a piece of Queensland's history in the Gold Coast hinterland.

Stanthorpe woman Samantha Wantling says the tension in the town is palpable, despite the news that fire crews have contained the blaze near the town.

In Queensland more than 50 fires were burning on Sunday.

At least 20 properties have been destroyed by fire over three days - mostly inland from the Gold Coast.

On Monday the fire was burning on both sides of Binna Burra Rd, south of Summerville Rd, Queensland Fire and Emergency Services said.

Twenty structures have been destroyed by bushfires since Thursday when the state's fire season began with severe to extreme conditions across much of the south.

As a result, over the past four days it is estimated that dozens of homes have been destroyed, along with hundreds of thousands of acres of bushland.

"The thing I need to talk to you about is this fire is still an ongoing concern", Queensland Fire and Emergency Services Assistant Commissioner Megan Stiffler told a community meeting at Stanthorpe late yesterday.

"So it's making firefighting in that area very, very hard".

Armidale is already experiencing early-morning winds of up to 40km/h and gusts of up to 60km/h, pushing the Bees Nest blaze towards the northeast.

QFES said fire crews are working on containing the fire in that area, and with efforts also focused into the Broadwater State forest.

"Unfortunately, we think that the property loss will climb from what we understand lost so far, but it will take some time until crews can get in there and tally those costs", Mr Rogers said.

Neville Smith is in a critical but stable condition at Royal Brisbane Hospital.
