The current weather patterns are likely to result in smoke accumulating in low lying areas.

Residents may see or smell smoke from the planned burns but warn that if the smoke might be from a fire burning nearby to call Triple Zero (000).

There is no immediate threat to the community but VicEmergency suggests that if residents have health concerns that they seek medical advice.
