Strong winds and high temperatures add to fire danger

THE Queensland Fire and Rescue Service has advised the heightened fire danger for North, South West and Central Queensland will continue on Tuesday and for the weekend.

The combination of strong winds (up to 40km/h expected), high temperatures and low relative humidity will make it very difficult to contain vegetation fires, so residents should take extra care and be alert, the fire service said.

There's a very high fire danger for many districts, including the Channel Country, Warrego and Maranoa.
