The Department of Parks and Wildlife (DPaW) is conducting a prescribed burn today in pine plantation 10km north-east of Wanneroo.
Smoke will be visible from this burn.
Motorists should take care, turn on headlights and travel at appropriate speeds when driving through areas affected by smoke. People with conditions exacerbated by smoke should take precautions in line with their medical advice for these circumstances.
Prescribed burns create low-fuel areas in a mosaic of burnt and unburnt patches across the landscape, which help stem the spread of bushfires, DPaW says.Details of the burn are available on DPaW's website at www.dpaw.wa.gov.au
