“From our fire monitoring charts and other meteorological parameters, there is a very high probability of fire outbreaks due to careless handling of open fires.

“Therefore, the Liquefied Petroleum Gas operators and the general public are advised to be; mindful of naked fires and cautious of lighting fires in and around forests, farmlands and open areas without extended fire belt unattended to,” the Agency said in a statement.

It added, “the atmosphere will remain very dry and hazy with a drastic reduction in visibility values of less than I km to a little above 3km will be observed.”

The condition is set to remain until Saturday February 16.
