The QLD Fires application is designed to provide information on current fires within the state of Queensland Australia. The information is displayed in a list or map view to enable the user to understand how far the fire is from a user.
The application also maps current wind and satellite "hotspot" data to try and provide as much information as possible.
It utilises fire information from the Queensland Fire and Rescue Service, wind information from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology and Satellite "Hot Spots" from Geoscience Australia.

I would say I enjoy this app BUT I am very grateful for this app and the ability to be able to see where fires are. I own horses that where being ready to be evacuated previously due to fires. Thanks to this app I am able to check regularly if there are fires in the area they live and get them ready to be evacuated if necessary m.
Like the app but...
Like the idea of this app but in the last month or so I am getting notifications for fires from 2 weeks or more ago but the notifications for new or current fires are not coming through.
Would love the opportunity to have a siren of some description for new alerts near me as a different sound to FB alerts that I generally ignore. Can there be a different alert from fires in relation to trucks not being at fire station as I nearly had a heart attack when a “fire” broke out in Gympie (several times), turns out it is just when the truck is out of the station.
Lastly less confusing info about the fires eg. the fire at Black Snake (Kilkivan) states that there are multiple warnings for this fire however I can’t find more than one warning which relates to a very small area and had to go to Facebook to get more info but had to sift thru a lot of other fires to get the info I needed.
Just want to say that you are doing a great job, just not sure if you knew of these glitches.
Needs information about status levels
Firstly, thank you for the app. As I travel in a caravan I really appreciate it.
The app needs an explainations of what each status means you need to be doing. “Information”, “advice” and “notification” sound reasonable similar. And what are the pink dots that have suddenly appeared on the map? Could you include a list explaining what each status level means please?
The status that the NSW “Fires near me” app use ... “out of control”, “being controlled” and “under control” make it immediately clear what is actually happening. This app also has a map legend explaining the symbols on the map.
