Water bombers close Fraser Coast dam

AS CREWS continue to battle a major bushfire in the Woodgate region, a Fraser Coast dam is providing vital water resources.

Water-bombing aircraft are using Lake Lenthall to refill as they fight the fire, which caused an evacuation warning and threatened to jump the river to Burrum Heads overnight.

The dam has been closed to boating and recreation activities until further notice.
