The Parks and Wildlife Service at the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions has issued a smoke alert for Bunbury, Donnybrook, Collie, Worsley, Burekup and Binningup and surrounds.

The smoke is from prescribed burns in the area. It is expected to dissipate 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.
