Bushfire continues in Carnarvon

Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) is aware of a bushfire burning in inaccessible land in the Carnarvon National Park.

The fire in question has been burning since Sunday afternoon, and is being monitored by the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS).

It is expected to burn for a number of days yet, and smoke will continue to affect the area.

Those suffering a respiratory condition should keep their medications close by, and people are being asked to avoid the area, if possible.

Smoke can decrease visibility, so motorists should travel with caution and drive to conditions.
