Locals have been advised to follow their bushfire survival plan and be ready to leave quickly.

Meanwhile, a fire near Undullah, near Ipswich, which was moving slowly east towards properties near Mt Elliot Road and Flinders Peak Conservation Park, has been downgraded to an alert level.

Earlier, hikers in Flinders Peak Conservation Park near Ipswich were told to leave immediately via text message about 12.30pm due to the blaze, however that warning was cancelled by late afternoon.

People in the area will be affected by smoke, which will reduce visibility and air quality.
