QFES crews remain at the scene of the bush blaze at the town common in Goondiwindi which has blanketed the area in smoke today.

Firefighters are conducting backburning operations in the area. There is no threat to property currently, but the fire is generating smoke.

Residents in Goondiwindi and the surrounding areas are advised to close windows and doors, and keep medications close by if suffering from a respiratory condition.

Motorists should drive with caution and to conditions.

Officials say the Blaze began last week and has been under watch since then and today’s flare up has necessitated some more back burning.
