KPSM Warns Residents about Lighting Bush Fires close to homes.
On Wednesday March 20th, 2013 around 11:30am a police patrol from the uniform division saw a big dark cloud of smoke in the area of AJC Brouwers road.
Not knowing what was taking place and seeing that there are a lot of private homes in that area, the patrol immediately started to investigate and it was confirmed that there was indeed a fire but not a home.
Upon further investigation the patrol found that the fire was that of some bush that was cleared off a parcel of land that had gotten out of control.
The fire however was extinguished by neighbors and those whom had been clearing the parcel of land.
The parties in question were spoken to and advised to take better precautions when lighting bush fires that are very close to homes.
