Rimba fire reaches 90ha of government land

A forest fire near Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) on the second day of Hari Raya Aidilfitri at noon is believed to have reached 90 hectares of government land.

The firefighters faced fires burning in several patches of the forest at a distance of three kilometres into the forest, accessible only through RPN Kampong Rimba.

They utilised the snap tank, using tree branches as beaters and eight water hoses from fire engines, a nearby fire hydrant and an open water source.
