Multiple fire crews are attending a grass fire burning near the Burnett Highway at Redgate.
This is another fire that was reportedly sparked by Thursday’s lightning storm.
A Queensland Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said firefighters were establishing containment lines and were expected to remain on scene into the evening.
A spotter aircraft has been used throughout the South Burnett over the past few days to help firefighters detect lightning strike fires from the air.
