By BBN Staff: The Government of Belize has informed that tomorrow, the Forest Department firefighting crew will enter the Vaca Forest Reserve to contain the wildfire there from spreading further into the forest and further into the Chiquibul National Park.
The fire in the Vaca Area has the potential to release an enormous amount of smoke into the municipalities of Benque Viejo del Carmen and San Ignacio and has been determined by the fire teams to be a top priority.
The Government also informed that based on tomorrow’s report, it will be decided whether to declare the Vaca fire an emergency.
Government says that efforts will be coordinated with Friends for Conservation and Development (FCD), the Southern Wildlife group and municipal councils to tackle the fire situation as best as possible.
Government will try its best to provide updates and notes that in the absence of information reaching each and every person, there is still much happening and much work being carried out by the Forest Department and other national and local stakeholders to monitor and fight the fires affecting our communities.
“The understanding of the public during this state of emergency is again requested, and all persons are reminded of the new law which prohibits the starting of any fires. This will remain in effect until further notice,” government reminds.
