Illegal backyard fire sparks warning

A CREW from Torquay Fire Station was called to an illegal backyard fire in Urangan. 

When the fire fighters arrived at the Daymon St home, timber was burning in the backyard. 

By local council law, it is illegal to have a backyard fire in the urban limits. 

A Queensland Fire and Rescue spokesman said it could be seen as a warning to the Fraser Coast community.

Crews were called to the fire about 10am on Wednesday.
