Smoke haze in Echuca-Moama due to NSW fires

By Ivy Jensen

ECHUCA-MOAMA residents are being assured the smoke visible throughout the twin towns are not due to any district fires.

According to district fire crews, the smoke is a result of fires burning in NSW and south-east Victoria fires.

Echuca CFA captain said if people were concerned there was a fire, they should look for flames or a column of smoke rather than haze before calling 000.

"I would recommend people download the VicEmergency app if they want to be notified of any fires," he said.

With today's temperature expected to reach a scorching 46C, Mr Amos said CFA crews were on standby at the Echuca fire station.

"We're ready to go if needed," he said.
