Don’t panic if you see some smoke around North Gregory on Wednesday.
Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) is conducting a planned burn within Bingera National Park, north of Foleys road.
It is part of the annual hazard reduction/conservation management program for parks and forests.
As a result, smoke may be seen in the vicinity of South Bingera and North Gregory area.
The aim of this burn is to reduce the volume of forest fuels and to create a mosaic pattern of burnt and unburnt areas.
This will help reduce the intensity of any subsequent wildfires and provide favourable conditions for natural forest regeneration.
Smoke can decrease visibility on the roads so it is important that motorists drive safely to the conditions.
Persons with respiratory or other health problems should seek medical advice on mitigating the effects of smoke inhalation.
