Residents at Sarabah warned to leave now as bushfire threatens properties

Residents are being told to leave now at Sarabah south of Canungra as a large bushfire threatens the area.
QFES has issued a 'Watch and Act' alert with locals to follow their bushfire survival plan now.
If you do not have a plan, your safest option is to leave now if it is clear to do so. If you are not in the area, do not return, as conditions are too dangerous.
Currently as at 12.20pm, Friday 6 September a dangerous fire is travelling in an easterly direction towards Beechmont Road. 
It is expected to impact Darlington Range Road, Climax Court, Limerick Drive, Coral Court, Bode Court and Shay Place within the next two hours. The fire could have a significant impact on the community. 
Those leaving the area should travel north or south along Beadesert Nerang Road 
Fire crews are undertaking property protection but firefighters may not be able to protect every property. You should not expect a firefighter at your door. Power, water, and mobile phone service may be lost.
People in the area will be affected by smoke, which will reduce visibility and air quality. 
Call Triple Zero (000) immediately if you believe you are under threat.
