Smoke drifting from Charleston shed fire clean up

CFS crews are currently dismantling and extinguishing the remains of a large shed fire at Pfeiffer Road, Charleston in the Mount Lofty Ranges, South Australia.
Residents between Charleston and the Adelaide foothills should be aware that smoke may drift from the Charleston shed fire site towards Adelaide overnight as crews work to clean up the site.
CFS crews are in attendance and using heavy machinery to pull apart the remains of the hay bales and shed, causing various volumes of smoke to be produced.

Smoke may be present in the general area for several hours and does not need to be reported to Emergency Services.
