Air quality in Sydney at dangerous levels
Back-burning operations will continue around Sydney throughout Sunday as authorities capitalise on good weather, but the NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS) doesn’t expect much of a smoke haze.
More is planned while there’s a “stable atmosphere”, RFS commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons told reporters on Saturday afternoon.
“You can very quickly go from too wet, too cold right through to too dry and too dangerous.”
The area around Lindfield on Sydney’s north shore had the poorest air quality and extremely poor visibility, at one point reaching 894 on the air quality index published by Environment NSW
