Residents in parts of southern Queensland, specifically Tara and Kogan, have been urged to evacuate immediately due to a major bushfire threat. The warning applies to properties between several roads, and the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) has emphasized the potential danger to residents’ lives. Other areas of Tara and the rural community of Wieambilla have been advised to prepare for evacuation. The QFES has also warned that fire conditions in the affected regions could worsen rapidly. Residents without a safe place to go are urged to head to the Western Downs evacuation center.
