Police are investigating three fires which broke out along the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail late on Saturday evening.
About midnight a member of the public called Triple Zero after seeing a fire at the top of the D’Aguilar Highway near Benarkin.
Firefighters responded and located a further two fires further east, towards the town of Linville.
QFES and police have been unable to confirm the cause of the fires which subsequently burned out several hectares of vegetation between Benarkin and Linville.
Police are appealing for anyone who may have seen anything suspicious to contact them, particularly anyone who was in the area at the time near the helipad section of the Blackbutt Range.
Blackbutt Police can be contacted on (07) 5495-0099 or calls can be made to Crime Stoppers anonymously on 1800-333-000.
