A chemical spill in Perth's east has prompted a warning for people to avoid the area and residents to remain inside with windows closed and air conditioners off.

Firefighters are working to contain the chemical substance identified as mono isopropylamine, used in pesticide manufacturing, on Sheffield Road near the intersection of Dampier Road in Welshpool.

People bounded by Daddow Road, Tonkin Highway, Roe Highway, Orrong Road and Kewdale Road may be affected by smoke and fumes, the Department of Fire and Emergency Services warns.
