Former Warrnambool resident Damian Smith has witnessed first hand the fires raging out of control through Queensland's Sunshine coast.

Damian lives 10ks inland of Noosa and says there are multiple fires, hundreds of people have been evacuated, and homes and communities have been destroyed.

Over 70 fires are currently burning across Queensland and N.S.W.

Damian says he saw flames and thick smoke before realising the extent of what was going to happen.

He says all the roads are blocked off, people have been evacuated from homes, and hundreds of firefighters are tackling the out of control fires.

Damian's mate was evacuated from a pub at Peregian Beach and then heard it was destroyed along with the new supermarket and the petrol station which blew up.

With no rain forecast in coming months, Damian says the situation couldn't be any worse.
