RURAL and urban firefighters are responding to reports of a vegetation fire threatening at least one home at Bracewell.

About 1.55pm, Queensland Fire and Emergency Services received reports of a controlled burn that had jumped containment lines along Aplin Rd.

It is believed a property owner contacted emergency services about the fire threat, which is just 400m from a house.

Fire crews are not yet on scene.

It is still not clear just how fast the space between the flames and the house is closing.
