Smoke alert issued for Perth Hills

THE Department of Parks and Wildlife has issued a smoke alert for the Perth Hills.

The smoke, which is from today’s prescribed burns south-east of Kalamunda, is expected to clear tomorrow morning.

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

Smoke may reduce visibility on roads and motorists should take care, turn on headlights and travel at appropriate speeds.

People with asthma and 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.
