Sumba and Bangka Belitung are intensifying their forest and land fires prevention and control measures. Meanwhile, in South Kalimantan, fires razed an area in Sultan Adam Forest Park in Banjar regency. The fires began on Tuesday (7 August) and have not been contained the next day. A team of 45 South Kalimantan Manggala Agni personnel has been assigned to put out the fires. South Kalimantan Manggala Agni Coordinator Zulkarnaen said that it took around one hour for his team to bring water to the fires area and that strong wind and dry conditions only fueled the fires.
