A private landholder is today conducting a hazard reduction burn, weather permitting, on the property of ‘Lambrigg’, Tidbinbilla Road, Paddys River.

The pile burn is expected to continue through the day and maybe into tomorrow morning.

The ACT Handy Map grid reference for the burn is J15.

Temporary smoke cover may occur.

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.
