S'poreans should know that Bukit Batok forest fires not easy to put out

S'poreans should know that Bukit Batok forest fires not easy to put out
Kudos to the firefighters and personnel handling the forest fires at the Bukit Batok area, because according to STOMPer Ming, they were not easy to put out.

In an email to STOMP today (Feb 19), the STOMPer wrote:

"Great job done by all the firefighters and personnel handling the fire at Bukit Batok forest area under sudden and difficult environment.

"The pictures shows just how extend the fire ravage the trees with such intense ferocity.

"It can be clearly seen that the second day of the fire was much more damaging and difficult to contain.

"Hope this is a good eye-opener for everyone in Singapore that a fire can be very dangerous when it gets out of control."

The STOMPer sent in these pictures of the fire and the aftermath.

We didn't start the fire
It was always burning
Since the world's been turning
We didn't start the fire
No we didn't light it
But we tried to fight it
