Bushfires are continuing to devastate the Darling Downs region in Queensland, with 35 homes already destroyed. “Prepare to leave” warnings have been issued for multiple communities, urging residents to either enact their bushfire survival plans or plan a safe route away from the fire. The blaze in Landsborough, near Australia Zoo, is particularly concerning as it burned to within 1km of the zoo. The fire is being treated as suspicious. Today is a crucial day for firefighters as worsening weather conditions are expected tomorrow, with temperatures predicted to exceed 30 degrees Celsius.
