There will be a small number of staff on site prior to this to check for wildlife in the area. The burn area may continue to generate smoke even after burn operations are completed. Council staff will not depart site until the burn area is safe. QFES will be notified of the fire status when Council staff depart site.
Suburbs which may be affected by smoke include Mt Coot-tha, The Gap, Bardon, Toowong, Indooroopilly and Chapel Hill. Smoke will be visible from Sir Samuel Griffith Drive, the Western Freeway and surrounding streets. There may be an inversion layer (cool air) overnight which may cause some smoke to settle in lower areas.
