Wildfires on QLD/NSW Border

Largish fires reported today in NSW and QLD. Several news reports from ABC News online. Here is a hotspot image that I captured off the Sentinel website , showing these fires (and some others). While making the image, I identified the locations of all the fires mentioned in the articles. On the image, the Chillingham fires is the southeast group and the Mt Nathan fire is the northeast group. No reports on the group to the northwest, near Tarome, QLD. It was not noted in the QFRS Significant Fire Report for the day, either.

  • Not a classic fire weather day by any stretch of the imagination...low temperatures, but gusty winds, at times.
  • Several of the fires were started by escaped burns by private landowners
