Well, by now you've probably noticed the thick smoke haze over Perth which has sparked an alert for people in the city as well as the Perth Hills.

Prescribed burns are the reason behind the heavy layer of smoke blanketing parts of the city.

The Department of Parks and Wildlife is carrying out the burns along with local government and property owners in and around Helena Valley.

It's expected to lift this afternoon but authorities believe it may return again this evening.
