MFS advises that crews are responding to a rubbish and waste fire at a waste depot.
The emergency is located at Hanson Rd North, Wingfield.
The emergency is a fire contained to rubbish and waste, but is burning well and causing smoke to drift. The threat of smoke emanating from this fire has reduced. However variable winds are causing smoke to drift in a southerly direction from the incident and may be affecting suburbs such as Gepps Cross, Blair Athol, Kilburn, Regency Park, Mansfield, Angle Park, Ottoway, Athol Park and Wingfield. Whilst the fire does not pose a threat to people in these areas, they are advised to close all doors and windows and stay indoors if they suffer from any respiratory or cardiac conditions.
While the MFS is aware of this incident, if you notice a different emergency incident that is unattended, call "000".
For information, listen to your local emergency services broadcaster, or visit the MFS website www.mfs.sa.gov.au.
