BUSHFIRE EMERGENCY, November 2019. As at 20 November, there are some 70 bushfires burning across Queensland, with 80 fire trucks on the front line. Near the large regional city of Toowoomba, west of Brisbane, three homes have been destroyed at Ravensbourne and it looks like five or more have been gutted at Pechey. An evacuation order remains in place for Moreton Island campers, who should head for the Tangalooma Island Resort on the island. 15 homes have been lost at Cobraball on the central Queensland coast and another destroyed at Cooroibah on the Sunshine Coast.
