MIRI: Miri city continues to be shrouded in a veil of haze caused by smog from wildfires raging in the outskirts.  

As of Sunday noon, the city skyline from Canada Hill looks blurry. 

The South China Sea fronting the town was no longer visible.  

On Saturday night, the haze enveloping the city was thick and choking.  

Parts of northern Sarawak and Brunei are seeing raging forest fires in plantations and forested land caused by unscrupulous open burning.
