A smoke alert has been issued for Westbury, following a small vegetation fire at Moore Street on Saturday afternoon.
A Tasmania Fire Service spokesman said the half acre fire had been brought under control, with no threat to the community.
“The fire had burnt through gorse grass, which can cause a significant amount of black smoke,” the spokesman said.
Smoke and ash may be visible around the Westbury area.
People with medical conditions are advised to have a personal plan for avoiding smoke from the burn.
People traveling in the area should exercise caution if driving in smoke, by turning on headlights and driving slowly.
