Straddie bushfire over

QUEENSLAND Fire and Emergency Services have declared the bushfire burning on North Stradbroke Island this week is out.

Superintendent Mike Dwyer declared the bushfire had stopped burning at about 11am on Friday.

QFES auxillary and mainland urban firefighters have worked with Redland and Brisbane State Emergency Service volunteers, Redland City Council and Sibelco since the fire flared up on Monday.

The fire was burning about two kilometres south of Yarraman Mine, but posed no immediate threat to human life or property.

Firefighters were assisted by air support from water bombing and reconnaissance helicopters, as well as afternoon showers on Thursday.

Tripod and Fishermans tracks, which were closed during the fire, are safe and due to reopen shortly.

Island auxillary crews will monitor the area over the weekend to ensure the fire does not re-ignite.
