Smoke visible over Adelaide


SA Country Fire Service (CFS) advises a large amount of smoke is visible over the Adelaide and surrounding areas.

The smoke is caused by a fuel reduction burn began in the Mount Crawford Forest today, as part of ForestrySA's continuing commitment to bushfire preparedness.

Ignition of the 60ha burn began in forest near Cricks Mill Road at 9am and was completed by 1pm. The fireground is safe and will be monitored by fire staff into the evening, with smoke expected to be present throughout the night.

While burning conditions have remained safe throughout the day, winds and substantial cloud cover have kept smoke low to the ground and visible over the city of Adelaide.

A wind change late into the evening is expected to push smoke back in a general south easterly direction.

ForestrySA apologies for any inconvenience caused while the burn is in progress.
