More smoke expected over ACT today

The Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development are continuing to conduct prescribed burns across the ACT today.

The 399 hectare burn near Wombat fire trail off Brindabella Road in the Lower Cotter Catchment, and the 12.59 hectare burn at Australian National Botanic Gardens continue to burn.

Also prescribed burns have started at two new locations.

- a 20.17 hectare burn west of Uriarra Village south of Brindabella Road and adjacent to Uriarra Village fire trail; and
- a 2.58 hectare burn at Coombs near Molonglo River adjacent to Edgeworth Parade.

Temporary smoke cover is expected across Canberra as a result of the fires.

Every effort is made to conduct burns in weather conditions that will minimise the impact of smoke.

The burns will continue for several days.
