Fires Still a Concern in Queensland, Australia22.1S 146.6E
Fires remain a concern in Queensland’s southern inland and south-west, with a number of towns on high alert. Here, smoke can be seen in various areas across the region. Fire restrictions are expected to remain in place until the region receives substantial rain. However, a fire that enveloped the central Queensland city of Rockhampton in thick smoke yesterday afternoon is now under control.
