QFES has confirmed both fires are “information-level” and do not pose an immediate threat.

Last year in November, a fire began in Pechey and spread to Esk, tearing through acres of state forest and bushland.

Residents and patients from the Esk Hospital were evacuated due to the blaze.

A fire that tore through Linville in September resulted in a “leave now” warning, which directed residents to evacuate.
