A Perth Airport spokesperson said the prescribed burn was part of its ongoing management program to reduce the risk of bushfire on the estate.

“This day and time have been carefully selected, as the weather and ground conditions are suitable to avoid negative impacts associated with smoke,” the spokesperson said.

“All prescribed burning and fire suppression operations are conducted consistent with the requirements of the Department of Fire and Emergency Services and the Department of Parks and Wildlife.”
