The Queensland Fire and Emergency Service said on November 22 that a Large Air Tanker (LAT) was continuing its firefighting support to ground crews on Fraser Island, Australia, in the containment of an ongoing bush fire.
The Queensland government has had a wildfire alert in place for Fraser Island since October, when the blaze began. A number of camping areas and roads were closed.
The Queensland Fire and Emergency Services said the LAT could go up to 670km/h (about 415 mph) and can get from its Bundaberg base to assist crews on scene in less than 20 minutes. Credit: Queensland Fire and Emergency Services – QFES via Storyful
