The heatwave has caused traffic chaos in Melbourne with major delays on the city’s rail network as it experiences its hottest day on record.

Meanwhile in northern Queensland, residents are struggling to control a bushfire near Townsville.

Fire crews had spent several hours on Monday morning trying to contain the blaze at Hervey Range as residents were urged to evacuate their homes.

Residents in the village on Thornton Gap Road are warned to enact their bushfire plan immediately – and to leave if they don’t have one.

Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) said spot fires could break out due to embers being thrown from the fire.

Residents in the area could lose power, water and mobile phone facilities over the course of Monday afternoon.

QFES has warned fire crews won’t be able to protect every affected property.

Leaving is the safest option, it said.
