A private landholder is conducting a hazard reduction burn at Duffy today.
Several vegetation piles will be burned at the Canberra Equestrian Centre on the corner of Hindmarsh Drive and Eucumbene Drive throughout the day.
Smoke is expected to be visible in the surrounding 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.
