If your impatient the most intense part is from 1:30 to 2:40, however the beginning sets the scene well and gives it an ominous and dramatic mood so I recommend watching the whole thing ;) I recorded this from the Greyhound bus on our way from Airlie Beach to Hervey Bay, believe it was close to Rockhampton. The fires were burning all the way down to the road and I could actually feel the heat from the flames inside of the bus. Apparently the fires had been raging for some twenty odd days in the area by then. This capture was made on the evening of 20th Oct 2009.
From the look of it the firefighters had initiated a hazard reduction burn to stop a much larger fire from spreading further. As long as the wind was blowing to the same direction I presume they would keep the road open.
