People told to leave as fire threatens Queensland homes

Rural residents in southern Queensland are being urged to evacuate as their lives could be at risk from a large fast-moving bushfire.

A warning to leave immediately was issued on Monday afternoon and reissued early on Tuesday by the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services for residents in Tara and Kogan.

The fire is burning near Chinchilla Tara Road and it is expected to affect Bennett School Road soon.

“Your life could be at risk. It will soon be too dangerous to drive,” the QFES warning says.

“Firefighters may not be able to stop the fire from getting closer. Do not expect a firefighter at your door.”

An evacuation centre has been set up at Western Downs Regional Council customer contact centre.

Multiple fire crews and waterbombing aircraft are battling the blaze.

Watch and act warnings have been issued for adjacent areas.

More than 50 fires were at one stage burning across Queensland on Monday.
