As a reminder, this is the third year in a row that Queensland has been rocked by fires that have killed more than 30 people and displaced over 1 million.
The latest fire is the most severe since the devastating Queensland bushfires of 2002.
The last major bushfire to affect Queensland was in 2010, when a bushfire ravaged the state’s north coast and left more than 2,000 dead and nearly 6,000 homes destroyed.
This time around, there is little that can be done to contain the situation and authorities have been forced to rely on the state government’s own resources.
The first fire on the island of Manawatu occurred in May 2016 and was blamed on an unknown cause.
The island is home to more than a million people and has been on fire for three years.
A major road closure was imposed on the Island of New Guinea in May to protect the firefighting operation.
A firefighting helicopter was also involved in the fire.
Last year, the Manawatū Fire Council reported that fires were starting to spread rapidly in the state.
Firefighters were called to a house in Wodonga, near the northern end of Manewatu, on May 6 after reports of a loud noise.
“There were two or three fire trucks at the scene and they had just come from the village to do a fire inspection,” Manewatū fire district fire officer James MacLean told News24.
MacLean said that the incident was investigated by firefighters, who found the cause of the fire was a tree trunk fire.
“They were able to bring it under control within 15 minutes,” he said.
A further fire was reported on the same day, but no-one was injured.
Another fire broke out at the island’s south end, which is also home to a number of indigenous communities.
This fire, which occurred on May 21, caused $200,000 in damage to the property, but the fire has been contained.
On May 29, the fires were again reported in Manawati, which lies in the same area as the previous fires.
The first was a small fire in a neighbouring farmhouse that resulted in $90,000 worth of damage, but it was quickly contained.
It is believed the fire originated in a bush fire and spread into nearby forests, causing a $2.2 million property loss.
Then, on June 8, a large bushfire broke out in the Maniwatu River.
At the time of the fires, authorities were unable to immediately confirm the cause.
Manawatulah firefighters were on the scene, but were unable as the fire remained uncontrolled.
The fire destroyed the property of a nearby mangrove farm, while the surrounding land was cleared of vegetation.
As the fires spread, the Government issued a statement saying that the Queensland Government was working with authorities to address the fire risk.
In a statement on Friday, Minister for Agriculture and Forestry, John Day, said that Queensland had the highest fire risk in the country, but he did not expect the fires to slow down.
“There is no sign of fire slowing down.
This is not a cyclone, it is a fire.
It’s just that we need to work with the state to manage the risk,” Day said.”
We know that our local communities will need to continue to work hard to deal with the fire risks and the community can expect to see the fires continue to spread.”
It is important that Queenslanders work together to reduce the fire threat in the area so that they can continue to enjoy the great outdoors and continue to provide a safe, healthy and pleasant environment for their families and loved ones.
“As we’ve reported before, Queensland’s bushfire risk has been in the headlines over the past few years.
Earlier this month, authorities reported that a total of 6,200 firefighters had been working in a coordinated effort to contain fires in the region.
Since last year, more than 100 fires have been put out and authorities warned that more fires could erupt in the coming months.
