Did you find yourself awake last night like us thinking of those affected with the Bushfires...and how strong the smoke smell was in some parts of the GC?
Here's the latest info. The bushfire focus has shifted to the Sunshine Coast.. where a number of homes have been lost around Perigian Springs.
Hundreds of people were evacuated from a fast moving fire front overnight - police have been questioning a number of teens about starting those blazes. Can you believe this??!!
Residents around the Gold Coast Hinterland are still not in the clear.. even though the warning level this morning has been downgraded to ADVICE level at SARABAH, BEECHMONT and ILLINBAH.
Have a listen below to Rod from the Gold 92.5 News Room explaining the winds and whether Sea Water can be used to extinguish flames.
The Mayor of the Scemic Rim also gave us an update on what happened overnight.
To hear Mayor Tom Tate's thoughts, listen below.
