Crews monitor Cooroibah blaze
EMERGENCY services, volunteers and residents will remain on high alert this weekend as crews continue to monitor fires burning across the Noosa region.
On Friday afternoon Queensland Fire and Emergency Services said crews were on scene at a bushfire at Cooroibah and Noosa North Shore.
“This fire is currently burning within containment lines and posing no threat to property at this time,” the QFES statement said.
“QFES crews will continue to strengthen containment lines and patrol the area.”
“Residents may be affected by a smoke haze.”
As we head into the weekend the fire danger will remain very high for the Southeast Coast, prompting residents to remain vigilant.
