Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) advises there is a bushfire in Woodgate.

There is a separate warning current for Kinkuna Waters and the surrounding areas. Residents in these areas should follow instructions given in that bushfire warning.
Follow your 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 5.30pm Friday 15 November, a bushfire is burning near Woodgate Road and Woppis Road, and travelling towards Walkers Point Road, Woodgate.

Woodgate Road is closed in both directions. Residents who have been evacuated from Walkers Point Road are still unable to return to Walkers Point.

For residents who have already self-evacuated from Walkers Point Road or Woodgate and are unable to shelter with friends and family, an evacuation centre is open at the Isis Cultural Centre, 49 Churchill Street, Childers.

Fire crews, with the assistance of heavy machinery, will continue to work on containment lines and carry out firefighting activities.

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 over the coming days, which will reduce visibility and air quality.

Call Triple Zero (000) immediately if you believe you are under threat.

LEAVE NOW UPDATED 9:45AM 14/11/19 | The warning for the Woodgate/Walkers Point Road (south of Bundaberg) bushfire is Watch and Act.  

Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) advises there is a bushfire in Woodgate and conditions are getting worse. There is a separate warning current for residents in Kinkuna Waters Estate. Residents in this area should follow instructions given in that warning.

Follow your 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 9.45am Thursday 14 November, a bushfire is burning near Woodgate Road and Woppis Road, and travelling towards Walkers Point Road, Woodgate.

For residents who have evacuated and are unable to shelter with friends and family, an evacuation centre is open at the Isis Cultural Centre, 49 Churchill Street, Childers.

Residents self-evacuating from the Woodgate township via Woodgate Road will not be able to return until it is safe to do so.

Fire crews will be working with water bombing aircraft to contain the fire but firefighters may not be able to protect every property. Crews, with the assistance of heavy machinery, will continue to construct and strengthen containment lines throughout the day.

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 over the coming days, which will reduce visibility and air quality.

Call Triple Zero (000) immediately if you believe you are under threat.

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO:
• Listen to your local radio station or visit the Rural Fire Service (RFS) website for regular updates.
• Put on protective clothing (e.g., a long-sleeved cotton shirt, boots with thick soles).
• Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.

If you are leaving:
• Secure your pets for safe transport.
• Check for road closures and then advise family and friends of your intended travel route.
• Take your important documents and essential items (e.g., passports, birth certificates, prescription medication, food and water, and protective clothing) when you leave.
• Drive with caution in low visibility conditions.

If you are unable to leave:
• Bring pets inside; restrain them with a leash, a cage, or inside a secure room; and provide them with plenty of water.
• Move flammable materials such as doormats, wheelie bins, and outdoor furniture away from your house.
• Fill containers such as your bath, sinks, and buckets with water so you have access to drinking water and firefighting water.
• Close windows and doors, sealing the gaps under doors and screens with wet towels to keep smoke out of the house.
• If you suffer from a respiratory condition, keep your medication close by.
