Smoke Alert for Busselton to Bunbury

The Parks and Wildlife Service at the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions has issued a smoke alert for Busselton to Bunbury, including Capel.

The smoke is the result of prescribed burns being carried out today, 20km south-east of Busselton and 15km east-north-east of Margaret River.

The smoke is expected to clear by early morning tomorrow.


If the smoke is particularly thick, it is recommended people shut doors and windows and turn off air-conditioners.

Smoke may reduce visibility on some roads and motorists should take care, turn on headlights and travel at appropriate speeds when travelling in these areas.

People with asthma and pre-existing respiratory or cardiovascular illnesses should follow their pre-prepared treatment plan.

People with conditions exacerbated by smoke should take precautions in line with their medical advice for these circumstances.
