Today's burns

Parks and Wildlife’s prescribed burning program protects lives, property and infrastructure from bushfires through a carefully planned regime of controlled burns.

The benefits of prescribed burning include lower fuel loads across larger areas of the State’s south-west helping the department to reduce the severity and size of bushfires.

It is difficult to provide accurate notice of where and when prescribed burns will take place since the decision to commence a planned burn involves consideration of many factors. The decision to carry out a prescribed burn is made on the day and is dependent on suitable weather conditions and fuel moisture.

Below are the burns being conducted today and those in progress. Smoke may be visible.

If smoke affects you:

  • It is recommended people shut doors and windows, and turn off air-conditioners.
  • People with asthma and pre-existing respiratory and 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.

Smoke may reduce visibility on some roads. Motorists should take care, turn on headlights and travel at appropriate speeds when travelling in these areas.
