Firefighters are struggling to contain the large, fast-moving fire near Calavos, and are urging residents to leave their homes.

Power, water and phone lines may be hampered by the fire over the next few hours.

Multiple crews have also been fighting a large grass fire burning further north, near the Burnett Highway, west of Gladstone.
