UPDATE: Cap Coast fire to continue burning for next few days

7.50AM: A BUSHFIRE burning in Farnborough is expected to continue to keep Queensland Fire and Emergency Services busy for the next few days.

About 7pm last night, QFES were still backburning around the perimeter to contain the fire and make it safe.

One fire crew is on scene this morning monitoring the fire, which is still within the containment lines.

Yesterday afternoon, twelve fire crews had contained the bushfire burning near Farnborough Road, Iwasaki Road and Hinz Avenue.

QFES say the bushfire is expected to continue burning for the next few days and advise people in the area will be affected by smoke, which will reduce visibility and air quality.

Properties are not under direct threat but if this changes, call Triple Zero (000).
