ALOR SETAR (Bernama): The raging fire on Gunung Baling was brought under control following a water bombing operation on Friday (Feb 8), but the Fire and Rescue Department has intensified monitoring to prevent the fire from spreading to the adjacent Gunung Pulai.

“We saw the fire moving in one long line and there is a possibility it could spread to Gunung Pulai, which is close to Gunung Baling, but so far we have managed to prevent the fire from spreading,” said Baling Fire and Rescue Station chief Mohd Jamil Mat Daud.
