Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk says there are concerns at least one of the fires which forced hundreds of residents in the Lockyer Valley to flee their homes was deliberately lit.
Several fires impacted the towns of Laidley, Thornton, Townson and Grandchester yesterday with one property destroyed.
Firefighters have contained the blazes and police are continuing to investigate.
