Smoke plume and haze - ACT

There is currently a smoke plume and smoke haze impacting the ACT from fires burning in NSW.

These fires do not pose a threat to the Territory.

A change in wind direction has caused the smoke to blow across the region.

The ACT Emergency Services Agency wishes to reassure the community that there are no fires burning in the ACT.

Residents can monitor fires in NSW and the ACT via the NSW Fires Near Me app.

If you see an unattended fire in the ACT, call Triple Zero (000) immediately.

A Total Fire Ban has been declared for the ACT tomorrow, 29 November 2019.
