An electricity pole has been blamed for sparking a grassfire on a property in Birt Road, north of Kingaroy, on Friday afternoon.
Urban and rural fire crews were called to the blaze just before 12:30pm.
Upon arrival, firefighters found the top of a power pole had burned through.
Electric wires were draped across the paddock and a large crossbar was lying on the ground.
Firefighters quickly extinguished the blaze which burned out an area of several acres.
