Two fires prompt alert in Cairns


Residents living near the Paradise Palms Golf Club are being told to stay on top of bushfire alerts, with a blaze burning south of Kewarra Beach.

Flames aren't currently threatening properties, but smoke is blanketing some areas near Moore Road.

People need to close their windows and doors, while motorists are asked to slow down and take care.

Another blaze is burning in inaccessible land in East Trinity.

The Rural Fire Service says crews are monitoring the situation as thick smoke is making it hard to see.

Anyone concerned about their home, needs to call triple zero.
