The Parks and Wildlife Service has issued a smoke alert for Bunbury, Donnybrook, Collie, Worsley, Burekup and Binningup.

The service said the smoke was from prescribed burns in the area and was expected to dissipate tomorrow.

It is recommended to shut doors and windows and turn off air-conditioners if the smoke is particularly thick.

Smoke may reduce visibility on some roads and motorists should take care, turn on headlights and drive to the conditions.

People with asthma and pre-existing respiratory or cardiovascular illnesses should follow their pre-prepared treatment plan.

People with conditions exacerbated by smoke should take precautions in line with their medical advice for these circumstances.
