Smoke alert for Busselton, Capel and Nannup

The Parks and Wildlife Service has issued a Smoke Alert for Busselton, Capel, Nannup and surrounds in the City of Busselton and the Shires of Nannup and Capel.

The smoke is the result of a prescribed burn being carried out today 16 kilometres west of Manjumup by the Parks and Wildlife Service and is expected to clear overnight.


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.
