Be Aware : Kings Park - bush fire has started again....

Be prepared for a smokey ride if you are near the CBD tonight. Kings Park appeared to ignite again at around 3pm this afternoon.

I'm on the 15th floor in a CBD building and we have burning embers floating past my window!

And if you're heading North you'll also get a blanket of smoke from Two Rocks!

Safe travels,

Gary

Yeah saw this in full view coming north towards Narrows at 5pm. Funny contrast seeing the jet skiers enjoying themselves while the emergency services were doing their thing. Seemed to be a massive amount of smoke, I reckon a lot of damage was done.

Full face mask time? I remember a few years back large fires and wind direction sent smoke blanketing the entire Perth area. Inhaling that was unpleasant.
