SOME residents on North Stradbroke Island had to be evacuated from their homes as a grass and scrub fire moved closer.
Duty Manager of Operations in Brisbane Steve Holland said the fire was now contained but firefighters did not yet have it under control.
"We have lost a couple of structures, including a caravan, but they were in some indefensible places," Mr Holland said.
He said some residents had to be evacuated as a safety measure to move them out of the path of the fire.
At this stage, no-one has been injured.
