Queensland will swelter again in unseasonably high temperatures .. with concerns more fires could be sparked after yesterday's blazes in the state's north kept firefighters busy.

The biggest of the grass fires is on the Atherton Tablelands .. which started around noon and had threatened a property.

There were also grass fires at Redbank Plains .. west of Brisbane .. and Limestone Creek .. near Rockhampton in central Queensland.

Temperatures are expected to nudge 30 degrees again today.
