A HAZARD reduction burn will be conducted on Saturday to clear debris at Stirling Park in Yarralumla.

The ACT Rural Fire Service has said the small burn will target grass and piles of vegetation previously cleared by the National Capital Authority.

Smoke may affect the area, depending on wind conditions.

The ACT Health Directorate has warned that people with asthma, other chronic respiratory and or chronic cardiac diseases should not perform vigorous exercise and should stay inside if affected by the smoke.

People with asthma in particular should continue their medication and consult their general practitioner if they have any difficulties.

The authorities will continue to monitor the burn until no smoke is visible for 24 hours.
