Residents in the area of Mount Lindesay are being told to immediately seek shelter from a bushfire near the Queensland and NSW border.

An emergency warning has been issued for a blaze that is part of the Mount Barney fire and is moving quickly in an easterly direction towards Hardgrave Road, Mount Lindesay.

It is expected to have a life-threatening impact on the community.

Conditions are now very dangerous and firefighters are unable to prevent the fire advancing, a Queensland Fire and Emergency Services warning says.

"Do not attempt to leave the area," it says.

"Driving now would be extremely dangerous and potentially deadly. If you are not in the area, do not return."
