Q-FES extends the total fire ban area

A local fire ban for residents within the south west region was imposed by Queensland Fire and Emergency Services.
The ban affects residents in the Toowoomba Southern Downs Goondiwindi Western Downs Maranoa Murweh Quilpie Bulloo Paroo and Balonne Local Government Areas.
Current and upcoming fire conditions are perfect for bushfires to ignite and spread quickly meaning all open fires are prohibited and all Permits to Light Fire have been cancelled.
The ban is expected to remain in place until midnight on Monday September 28.
