A VEGETATION fire burning in the North Shore Wildfire State Forest area (Noosa North Shore/ Teewah Landing Strip) is causing a large smoke haze in the surrounding areas.

The fire, which is burning in accessible land is being looked after by the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) with the help of the Queensland Fire and Rescue Service (QFRS) and is expected to burn for the next few days.

Motorists are advised to exercise caution and drive to conditions as visibility is low in some areas.

The vegetation fire poses no threat to properties. Residents are advised to keep their doors and windows closed and, if they suffer from respiratory illnesses, keep medication close by.

 If residents believe their home is under threat, they are advised to call Triple Zero (000) immediately.
