Firefighters in Queensland are battling 50 fires burning across the state, with the most dangerous blaze raging in the Gold Coast hinterland.

The fire in the Lamington National Park remains out of control, and is burning towards the community of Numinbah Valley, northeast of Binna Burra.

Water bombers were used to subdue the blaze on Sunday as ground crews battled the fire, which has so far destroyed 11 homes.

Locals have been warned more properties could go, and livestock losses are expected to be significant.

At 1am on Sunday the fire was burning on both sides of Binna Burra Rd, south of Summerville Rd, Queensland Fire and Emergency Services said.

There were no properties under direct threat.

There was also some good news for residents further inland, in the Queensland border towns of Stanthorpe and Applethorpe, with a blaze there now contained.


Crews are pushing to strengthen the containment lines to ensure the fire stays under control.

Crews have also managed to contain a fire that broke out at Linville, in the Somerset Region inland from the Sunshine Coast, on Sunday.
