Share Canberra's trusted news:


THE ACT Rural Fire Service (ACTRFS) will tonight, Tuesday 14 April, 2015, weather permitting, assist landholders with a small hazard reduction burn at the property Westwood Farm, Lions Youth Haven, Kambah Pool Road, Kambah.

The pile burn is expected to commence from 6pm until approximately 8pm.

Six firefighters, one tanker and one light unit will be on scene from the Rivers ACTRFS Brigade assisting in the hazard reduction burn.

Temporary smoke cover may occur. Every effort is made to conduct the burn in weather conditions that will minimise the impact of smoke in the area.

The Health Directorate advises that people with asthma, other chronic respiratory and/or chronic cardiac diseases should not perform vigorous exercise and should stay inside if affected by the smoke. People with asthma in particular should continue their medication and consult their general practitioner if they have any difficulties.
