Batu Caves fire still burning

KUALA LUMPUR: Firefighters are continuing to put out a bush fire which has been burning on a hillslope since Friday at Batu Caves.

The blaze has, however, reduced to small pockets of fires on the hill.

Selangor Fire and Rescue assistant operations director Mohd Sani Harul said the dry weather has not helped the situation.

"However, the situation is under control," Mohd Sani said.

Residents of Taman Industri Bolton woke up to thick smoke from the fires on Friday.

The fire has been burning from about 60 metres above ground of the hillside.
