Mount Semeru fire. This incident is like a barrage because there were several mountains before that were burned.


The forest area of Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park - Mount Semeru in Ranupani Village, Senduro District, Lumajang, caught fire. Two fires continued to appear until smoke soared.

The long dry season is the cause of fires

The fires at the 2 points were in Ayek-Ayek and Sentong blocks. The fire broke out around 10 a.m.

The location of the fire, which is not far and can be reached by vehicles, makes it easier for TNI-police officers and officers from Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park to extinguish with makeshift tools.
