UPDATE, 3PM: A large grass fire is currently burning in the vicinity of Davies Rd, Captain Creek (south west of Agnes Water).

Four fire crews are at the scene and more crews are responding to the fire which broke out around 12.15pm today. 

The fire is moving in a north to north-west direction and fire crews are undertaking property protection within the area. 

EARLIER: Rural Fire Services crews from across the region are continuing to monitor and control a number of grass fires burning in the North Burnett and Bundaberg area.

Acting area director for Bundaberg rural operations Craig Magick said crew were attending fires at Kalpowar, Moolyung Road, Waterloo (near Bundaberg), in the vicinity of Diamond Hill Road, Monduran, Neuan Rd, behind Gin Gin, the Wallaville area and Mt Perry, and were taking advantage of the cooler temperatures.

It is believed the fires at Kalpowar, Monduran and Moolyung Rd, Waterloo, have been contained and fire crews are patrolling containment lines. 

Mr Magick urged anyone who was concerned about a fire in their area to phone Triple Zero (000) as many rural stations were unattended with crews out battling the blazes.
