A bushfire destroyed several hectares of bushes in Lorong Tiga area, Seria last Sunday (20 April 2014, Sunday). The fire which occurred at the bushes opposite the Lorong Tiga Housing Area Mosque caused the area covered in smoke.
A team of firefighters in a fire engine from Belait Fire Station rushes to the scene after receiving emergency call from the villagers as well as covering their counterparts from Seria Fire Station who are also busy fighting the forest fires in Anduki and Seria Bypass. They managed to control the fire within minutes with the help of several passerby.
Currently several areas in the Belait District are affected by the current dry weather thus keeping the Operational B command Belait District firefighters as well as the Brunei Shell Fire and Emergency Response (BSP FAERS) busy responding to forest and bush fires across the district. The public are also advised not to conduct open burning or bonfire withour supervision or during fishing and farming as it might cause major incidents such as forest and bushfires.
