Ridwan Kamil thanked BNPB for handling the fire on the highest mountain peak in West Java quickly, so that the fires due to the drought did not continue to spread.
"I have already called Pak Doni directly (Doni Munardo, head of BNPB), I have conveyed my gratitude and requested continued coordination with relevant agencies in West Java," he said.
Emil said that the handling of forest fires in Ciremai was indeed difficult because the fire point was on the summit and the slopes were difficult to reach manually by land. (Even)
