Fire spreading on Pantai Hill Orchard

January, February, March & April seem to be the dry and hot months on Pantai Hill. The lack of rain coupled with seasonal strong winds during this period has increased the risk of bush fires.

The recent bush fire at the entrance of Pantai Hill Orchard resort could be a result of indiscriminate disposal of cigarette butts or a flash bush fire from the intense heat on dry leaves.

Open burning is dangerous especially during this period. Some construction/general workers are still practicing open burning daily on Pantai Hill. Caution is paramount because fires can spread very quickly and can be out of control, even if workers are looking over it.
