FIRE crews have contained a bushfire burning over a large area near Leichhardt and Wulkuraka.

Queensland Fire and Rescue Service says two units were on scene at 5pm.

"The fire was stretching across a number of streets including Dixon and Aspinall," a QFRS spokeswoman said.

"It was also burning near the train tracks and down into a gully.

"Crews have been back-burning and the fire is now burning safely within a large containment line.

"There is however still a lot of smoke about but there are no threats to people or property."

The units left the scene at 7.30pm.

Later, at 9.30pm, a crew was called to bushland off Grampian Drive at Deebing Heights, where several small fires were discovered burning near each other.

A QFRS spokesman said the fires ranged in size from 10x20m to 5x10m.

All were contained quickly without further incident.
