Fire crews called to Bay BBQ fire
ONE person has been assessed by ambulance officers after a BBQ went askew.
A BBQ on a back patio caught fire just after 7pm last night in Point Vernon.
Two Queensland fire and rescue crews attended but most of the fire had been extinguished when they arrived.
A QFES spokeswoman said the early containment of the fire had been a great outcome.
Many others have not been so fortunate as almost 100 fires burn around New South Wales and Queensland.
The Fraser Coast currently has a fire danger rating of very high which will be increased to severe tomorrow.
