MORE than 5000 homes were left without power after a freak storm hit the South Burnett on Saturday.

There was no warning for residents as the super storm cell hit at about 8pm.

Ergon Energy spokesman Rod Rehbein said Kilkivan, Wondai, Cherbourg and Nanango were the worst affected areas.

"All the power should be restored by this evening," he said.

Several major bushfires also caused a haze of smoke to settle over Kingaroy and surrounding areas on Friday afternoon.

Kingaroy Fire Brigade's Area Commander Mark Long said the region had experienced continuous fires.
