Smoke to cover parts of the ACT

Smoke from a fire north of Cooma is expected to impact parts of the ACT tonight, as a southerly change arrives.

There may be a strong smell of smoke in some areas.

Currently, there are no fires burning in the Territory. If you see a fire without a crew or truck in attendance please ring Emergency Triple Zero (000).

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.
