& # 39; If someone needs to evacuate themselves or animals, you are welcome to bring them to our place in Imbil. We have large dog cages, horse pastures, stables and two guest rooms for everyone in need. Keep everyone safe, & # 39; offered a woman.

Sunshine Coast fires are largely under control on Saturday afternoons, but fire commanders warned people not to return to their homes yet.

Chief Inspector Rob Graham said 6,000 people have been evacuated from 4,900 homes in Tewantin, Lake Cooirabah and North Shore.

& # 39; There are still spot fires in the affected area and the weather and fire threat is volatile and variable & # 39 ;, he said.

& # 39; The danger is still very real.

& # 39; If we have to go back to an affected area that has already been evacuated and take people out of it, it is a crying shame. & # 39;

Only one house in Lake Cooroibah was destroyed.
