Last Update: 17/09/2019

JOHOR BAHRU, Sept 17 -- About 30 acres of forest close to Jalan Mega 1, Taman Perindustrian Nusa Cemerlang near Nusajaya, were ablaze this morning, with firemen managing to put out about 90 per cent of the fire by this evening. 

According to the Johor Fire and Rescue Department's Zone 1 head Mohamad Faizul Selamat, a team comprising 20 firemen from the Skudai, Pekan Nenas and Bandar Baru Kulai fire stations, was still battling the blaze which was reported to the department at 10.32 am, with firemen beginning their operation at about 11am.  

He told Bernama the cause of the fire could be natural and due to the hot weather, while the winds may have helped spread it.

The area is located near a highway but far from settlements, Mohamad Faizul added.
