Seven regencies in Jambi are prone to land fires. Residents in these areas are reminded to not use slash-and-burn method in clearing lands to prevent fires, Jambi Meteorology Station Class I Data and Information Head Kurnianingsih said on Sunday (July 8). Dry weather has begun in most areas of Jambi due to the low rainfall intensity.
