EMERGENCY services were kept busy in the Bundaberg region this weekend.

Boy stuck

FIRE crews were called to help when a 12-year-old boy climbed a 25-metre beachside rock face and became stuck at Agnes Water.

The incident happened about 2pm today and the boy was coaxed safely to the ground.

Oil spill

BUNDABERG ambulance and fire crews were called to TAFE Queensland East Coast in Bundaberg after a waste oil drum spilled.

Bundaberg Queensland Fire and Rescue acting station officer Stephen Liddle said the drum was righted just before 2pm today and a soaking agent was put on the oil.

Cars collide

TWO people have been taken to hospital with minor injuries after a four-car smash on Bourbong St between Tantitha and Walla Sts.

Bundaberg Senior Constable Steve Sabo said the crash happened about 10pm on Friday.

"One vehicle's merged into the other lane and has collided with the other vehicle in the right-hand lane," he said.

"Then they have collided with two parked cars in the centre car parking."

Knife brawl

FOUR Bundaberg police crews were called to Monarch Ave, Moore Park, following reports of an escalating property dispute and a woman armed with a knife.

Bundaberg Senior Constable Steve Sabo said when crews arrived this morning "there was no knife involved".

"It's been sorted out civilly," he said.

Grass fires

THREE children are being questioned by Bundaberg police following half a dozen grass fires.

Bundaberg Queensland Fire and Rescue acting station officer Stephen Liddle said the fires were lit between Walker and Mimnagh St this afternoon.
