“The steps taken have been coordinated with Pertamina to try to extinguish the fire,” he said, as reported by detikSumbagsel , Monday (4/3/2024).

Amin said access to remote locations was one of the obstacles. The team is currently working to prevent the fire from spreading to the forest area at that location.

“Indeed, this terrain is quite difficult to reach, so Pertamina is still carrying out blackouts as much as possible,” he said.
