Rural township keen to combat fire threat

WITH a horror bushfire season on the cards, Glenwood Progress Association's Don Scott has raised his concerns with Fraser Coast Regional Council.

He spoke during public participation at the council meeting, held in the township on Wednesday.

He said he was concerned about overgrown verges and private land.

It is an issue being faced across the region, as the combination of dry weather and hot temperatures make for a severe fire risk.
