The Kien Giang Province Forest Protection Sub-Department yesterday released a warning of very high fire danger to 13,000 hectares of forest in the Mekong Delta province. 
Amidst the severe threat of fire, the forestry sector has intensified precautions at all province- and- commune-level subdivisions to protect forest. 

Because most of the forests cover in mountainous and hilly areas, rangers have to regularly check the volume of water in lakes, ponds and tanks to proactively respond to forest fires.
