Smoke alert for Perth's southern suburbs

PIC: File

The Parks and Wildlife Service has issued a Smoke Alert for Perth's southern suburbs in the Perth metropolitan area and surrounds.

The smoke is a result of a bushfire currently burning north of Treasure Road in the Shire of Harvey.

The smoke is expected to clear by early afternoon.

- 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.
