Big burn-off delayed due to weather
A LARGE hazard reduction burn planned for the Caloundra area has been postponed.
A Queensland Fire and Emergency Services spokeswoman said weather conditions had not been suitable to conduct a 600 hectare burn encompassing Pelican Waters, Bells Creek and Golden Beach.
The burn had been planned for Thursday.
The spokeswoman said fire officials would meet on the site on Thursday or Friday to discuss a more suitable time.
Meanwhile, a smaller hazard reduction burn is expected to go ahead near Beerwah on Thursday.
Firefighters plan set 50 hectares of bushland on fire near Murphy's Rd, about 3.5km south west of Beerwah.
