Smoke from a prescribed burn in Quinninup is expected to linger across the SouthWest for the rest of Friday.
The Department of Parks and Wildlife (DPaW) has issued a Smoke Alert for Bridgetown to Bunbury.
DPaW has some tips if the smoke is hazardous to your health or while driving
- 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
