Update five – Builder’s waste fire at Canberra Concrete Recyclers

ACT Fire & Rescue has maintained a presence at the site overnight.

Crews were rotated through the job every three hours to continue pulling material off the rubbish pile and wetting it down.

Firefighters are expected to remain on scene for at least another 24 hours to get closer to the centre of the fire and fully extinguish it.

Smoke will continue to be visible. 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.
