Fire department calls on owners to keep properties clean to avoid fires

Posted: Saturday, August 31, 2019. 8:25 am CST.

By BBN Staff: The National Fire Service today informed of the challenges being faced with respect to recurring fires in areas surrounding the Old Belize City garbage dump and the new transfer station.

The National Fires Service clarifies that while these fires have not originated at the dump site or transfer station themselves, there is the ever present danger of them spreading to those sites, where the fires would be much more difficult to extinguish.

The National Fire Service has been working arduously in coordination with the Belize City Council and the Belize Solid Waste Management Authority to control, contain, and prevent all fires surrounding the old Belize City dump site and the new transfer station.

The fire service says that the fires are being caused primarily by the persistent hot and dry weather conditions, as well as moderate winds.

These factors create the optimal conditions for spontaneous combustion and the occurrence of dangerous fires, but the situation is also exacerbated by overgrown bushes on the properties surrounding those sites.           

In order to assist in controlling, containing and preventing these fires, owners or occupants of properties, especially those adjacent to the sites in question, are advised to keep those properties clean, or at the least maintain a 4 yard clearance around them.

Also, educate your children and other family members about the dangers of lighting fires and the irreparable damage that can be caused by one careless spark.

The public is asked exercise extreme caution and adhere to all fire-safety practices during this persistently hot and dry period. Together let’s keep our households and communities safe.
