By BBN Staff: The Forest Department, the Department of the Environment and other agencies including the Fire Department, the Belmopan City Council, and the business community continue to join forces to fight fires around Belmopan and out west in the Vaca Forest Reserve.
A joint release from the Ministry of Forestry and the Environment says that major successes were recorded yesterday, Sunday, April 26, around Belmopan and in the Vaca Forest Reserve.
Belmopan: Yesterday, Sunday, April 26, the Forest Department along with the Belmopan City Council and Westar Services, successfully controlled two wildfires in northeast Belmopan.
The crew remained dedicated to the task well into the night to ensure the fires would not reignite. The smoke from these fires has now subsided, and this morning in northern Belmopan, the conditions are much improved. Throughout the course of today, the situation will be monitored closely to ensure there are no flare-ups.
The Ministry says that it commends the dedicated officers of the Forest Department, Fire Department, the Mayor and staff of the Belmopan City Council, as well as employees of Westar Services, for their effort and service to their community.
The crew will now move to address other escaped fires in southern Belmopan. Fortunately, the weather conditions have improved and daytime temperatures are now in the mid-90s compared to 107 degrees Fahrenheit experienced last week.
