Bush: Fire: 11 fire in North Senegal (ministry)


Danube, Nov. 13 (APS) – 11 fire accidents affecting 5,249 hectares in the Luga, St. Louis and Matam Regions The Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development has made a statement.

He relates this situation to this year's rainfall, which "has led to the development of a large grass carpet, usually normally dried in the northern zone in the second half of October."

According to the same belief, "the intensive intervention of water and forest service departments has promptly led to the full control of the situation with the cooperation of local people."

The Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development, with the participation of rural committees, remains "active in all sensitive areas".

To prevent such incidents, the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development called for "good citizenship and responsibility for citizens and people living close to forests, for herders and for people in hazardous areas." "The prevention of bush fires does not harm domestic food resources," a statement reads.

From this point of view, with the support of partners, the Directorate of Water and Forestry, Hunting and Soil Conservation "has started the development and functioning of firewalls in the region," says sylvopastoral.
