Kathryn Magann |
Police in Queensland have removed an order preventing people in a fire zone in the state’s southeast from returning to their homes.
Residents of Kooralbyn in the Scenic Rim were ordered out on Friday afternoon as crews battled a fast-moving bushfire and police made an emergency declaration to evacuate the town.
Police revoked the formal order early on Saturday.
Queensland fire authorities said on Saturday a watch and act alert remained in place for the town.
The bushfire was one of more than 40 burning across Queensland on Saturday morning.AAP
