MFS advises that crews are responding to a RUBBISH FIRE at a WASTE DEPOT.

The emergency is located at HANSON ROAD 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 but will continue throughout the day. Winds are causing smoke to drift in a south to south westerly direction from the incident and may be affecting suburbs such as Angle Park, Ferryden Park, Athol Park, Pennington, Woodville North, Gillman, Ottoway, Rosewater, Alberton, Queenstown and West Lakes. 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".
