Feb. 24 — The St. Kitts-Nevis Fire and Rescue Services Department, through a release from Deputy Fire Chief James Warner, has issued a warning about the increasing number of brush fires in the Federation. According to the release, most of the brush fires are deliberately set while others are as a result of carelessness. Warner cautioned that these fires can spread rapidly and cause serious property damage, especially in a dry season. Persons were also reminded of the low water supply currently being experienced due to the lack of rainfall. Water is the principal firefighting agent and therefore must be conserved, whenever possible. Those seeking to burn materials should first seek permission from the St. Kitts-Nevis Fire and Rescue Services. This can be done through the submission of an “Authority to Burn” application form which can be obtained from any fire station in the Federation.
