Goldcoast, Australia — Fire fighters are tonight battling a series of major bushfires in the Gold Coast Hinterland.

Thick smoke has settled over most of the city, covering kilometres of low-lying coastal areas.

Fire units from city and rural services from all over the Gold Coast are battling the blazes around Mt Tamborine. The threat began this afternoon and the tinder-dry undergrowth – a result of months of drought – is fuelling thefires.
