Large plumes of smoke in the Steinhardts Road area at Moffatdale prompted a false alarm for firefighters on Tuesday afternoon.

A QFES spokesman said a neighbour reported a suspected wildfire, which was burning on a 400m front, and an urban and a rural fire unit attended.

However, it was quickly established the property owner had a permit for the burn although there had been a mix-up during the notification process to QFES.

Fire crews remained on site for about 30 minutes.
