Hazard reduction burn today at Acton

The ACT Rural Fire Service is conducting a hazard reduction burn today on behalf of the National Capital Authority in Acton.

The burn at Yarramundi Grasslands is to reduce fuel load as well as the number of exotic weeds in the area.

The burn is in an area next to Lady Denman Drive, southeast of the ATSI centre.

ACT Health advise people in the area with asthma or other chronic respiratory diseases to avoid exercising and should stay indoors if affected by smoke.
