The Esperance Shire has announced an unrestricted burning period from Friday, March 16 for all zones except ‘urban rural’.
This allows residents to light fires on their property without a permit.
Esperance Shire Community Emergency Services Coordinator Karen Naylor recommended caution at all times and reminded residents to notify their neighbours as a common courtesy so they can remove washing off their lines and close their windows.
“This is also important so they don’t panic when they see the flames and call 000,” Ms Naylor said.
The unrestricted burning time is currently scheduled to end on Tuesday October 2.
