HISTORIC PHOTOS: Burnett fires through the ages

DEVASTATING bushfires are ravaging Queensland and authorities are warning South Burnett residents to prepare for the worst.

QFES is asking Linville residents to stay informed about a bushfire burning in the area, and a fire ban prohibiting the lighting of fires is currently in place for the Bundaberg, North Burnett, Cherbourg, South Burnett, Fraser Coast, and Gympie areas.

Authorities are urging people to stay safe, and reminding residents of the seriousness of the fire season and the importance of having a bushfire plan.

We took a look back through the archives at some of the fires that have devastated the South Burnett region.
