Urban and rural crews battle Durong fire

URBAN and rural fire crews are fighting a grass fire at 11182 Chinchilla Wondai Rd in Durong

A Queensland Fire and Emergency Service spokesman said five urban and five rural crews are working on a fire burning slowly on 50-100 acres.

A local land operator is helping put a break in from Chinchilla Wondai Rd and to do back burning from the break.

A rural tanker is also en route.

The crews are working on the fire that is burning towards an area that is expected to become inaccessible.

The spokesman said two houses on Ridge Rd were under threat when crews arrived on scene at 4.30pm but doing structure protection has ensured there are no structures currently under threat.
