Perth residents have been told to take precautions as a smoke haze hangs over the city, the result of prescribed burns.

A smoke alert has been issued for the Perth metropolitan area from the CBD to Mandurah, including the Perth Hills, as a result of burns carried out by the Department of Parks and Wildlife.

People with asthma and any respiratory, cardiovascular or other conditions that may be exacerbated by smoke have been told to follow their treatment plans and take precautions.

It is also recommended people shut their doors and windows, and turn off air-conditioners, and take care on the roads.

The smoke is expected to clear overnight.
