A WARNING has been issued to south-west Queensland residents to be extra vigilant with heightened fire danger expected in the coming days.

"Very high fire danger has been forecast for Windorah, Quilpie, Ballera, Thargomindah, Cunnamulla, Charleville, Tambo, St George, Taroom and surrounds for today and in coming days," Mr Neal said.

"Warm temperatures combined with low humidity and strong winds make conditions perfect for fires to spark and spread quickly," Mr Neal said.
