Week 3 Title: Queensland bushfires threaten properties as hikers run fortheir lives Author: ABC News Source: Summary According to the news, authorities are facing two major fire threats inQueensland; one in central Queensland and another in the far north. The firstthreat is there are 11 bushwalkers trapped by the blaze in Blackdown TablelandNational Park were rescued by paramedics and the group of eight adults andthree children were treated for minor smoke inhalation and no one requiredtransportation to hospital. Lastly, one property has been lost in the separatebushfire south-west of Cairns in the state's far north, Atherton Tablelands.Residents living in the Walsh River Road area of the Atherton Tablelands weretold on early on Sunday afternoon to seek shelter from the fast-movingbushfire. Two water bombers and more than 50 firefighters have been workingat the scene to limit the fire and Queensland police have been helping toevacuate people nearby properties which were under imminent threat. Thefire, which has been burning for some time and described as \"erratic\", flared onSaturday evening when residents on Walsh River Road were advised to followtheir bushfire survival plans and leave their properties. The fire threat theneased, but the situation worsened again on Sunday. My reaction/reflection: In my opinion, people living in fire-prone areas must fully prepare abushfire survival plan and be ready to carry it out in order to avoid from the firethreats and to be safe.
