Smoke closes north-bound Yeppoon Rd

AUTHORITIES have closed part of the Rockhampton-Yeppoon Road this afternoon because of a bush fire.

A police spokesman said a section of the inbound road from heading towards Rockhampton had been closed because of the amount of smoke coming from the fire.

Firefighters have been battling a large grass fire in the area all day.

The fire has not threatened any homes at this stage.
