Police investigate cause of the fires along BVRT

Police are investigating three fires along the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail which occurred late Saturday evening.

At midnight a member of the public called Triple zero after seeing a fire at the top of the D'Aguilar Highway near Benarkin.

As yet, QFES and police are unable to confirm the cause of the fires which subsequently burnt several hectares of vegetation between Benarkin and Linville.
