A team of 30 firefighters, from Thailand’s northeastern firefighting unit of the Electricity Generation Authority of Thailand (EGAT), has been deployed to help their colleagues in the northern province of Tak to cope with forest fires which have, so far, razed more than 8,000 hectares of forests around the Bhumibol Dam.

 

The forest fires, which reportedly started in early January, have affected forests in Mae Toen wildlife sanctuary in Tak province, Om-goi wildlife sanctuary in Chiang Mai province and Mae Ping national park in Lamphun province and they are still burning uncontrollably.

 

According to the firefighters in Tak, the forest around the Bhumibol Dam has been burning for the past two days, with no sign of being extinguished.

Get the soldiers up into the forests all around Thailand. It is good training for them and it will keep this fire lighting barstewards out of the forests as well.

 

They are sitting around in barracks doin nuttin anyway. Oh wait - who is gonna cut the general's grass and feed his chickens!

 

Ignore my suggestion altogether. Wasn't thinkin straight.
