Queensland Fire and Rescue Service (QFRS) crews have handed management of a fire in the Tin Can Bay area back to the landholder, as the fire is burning safely within containment lines and there is no threat to the community. Crews will continue to monitor the situation over the next few days.
The smoke haze in the area has mostly cleared, however residents are advised to keep doors and windows closed and medications close by if they suffer from a respiratory condition. The community should remain alert and if they feel their home is under threat, phone Triple Zero (000) immediately.
