Man dies in fatal caravan fire at Bundaberg Gliding Club

EMERGENCY services have confirmed a man has died in a caravan fire this morning.

The Queensland Fire and Emergency Service was called to the Bundaberg Gliding Club, near the Isis Hwy, shortly after 7.30am.

Bundaberg Police Sergeant Mike McLellan said initial reports came in that a shed had caught alight.

"Police attended and found the fire had started in a caravan nearby, which belonged to a caretaker," he said.

"A person was recovered deceased in the burnt-out caravan."

Sgt McLellan said the man's body hadn't been formally identified, but it was believed to be that of the club's 73-year-old caretaker.

"It's possible (it's him), likely, but not confirmed," he said.

Sgt McLellan said specialist teams from Brisbane were on their way to Bundaberg to investigate the scene.

The fire is being treated as suspicious.

"We have to treat everything as suspicous until we know for certain," he said.

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or Police on 4153 9111.
