ORLANDO, Fla. -

An Orange County lake is closed on Friday for recreation and fishing after a sewage spill occurred.

Lake Azalea, located on 103 Willow Drive in Orlando, was closed after the spill on Friday.

Officials said the crews repaired the rupture from the City of Orlando wastewater line but samples will be taken to analyze the lake for bacteria.

The advisory will be lifted when bacteria levels are safe for recreational activity.
