Firefighters Face Storm of Flying Embers During Queensland Blaze

Firefighters were confronted by a storm of flying embers at a bushfire at Villeneuve in southeast Queensland on November 5.

Firefighters dealt with two bushfires in the area, one at Villeneuve and one near Kilcoy. Authorities used waterbombing aircraft to eventually bring the blazes under control.

Queensland Fire and Emergency Services warned local residents to prepare to leave at around 5:00 pm on Tuesday.

Firefighters also attended to several other fire incidents in the region, including at Teewah and at Lake Manchester on a hot and windy day that created severe fire conditions. Credit: Beerwah Rural Fire Brigade via Storyful
