Efforts to put out fire in Sejnane still ongoing

Efforts are ongoing Saturday to bring the fires that erupted in several places in Sejnane’s forest area under control.

Human and material resources mobilised by the regional anti-natural disaster committee and backed by two National Army planes helped to put out the fire in Skhira (Sejnane) this afternoon, Regional Agricultural Development Commissioner Khelifa Hammami said.

The dispatched reinforcements have helped the different units to intervene in Sejnane’s dense forests, reduce the sources of fire and prevent the fire from re-erupting in the controlled areas, Bizerte Governor Mohamed Gouider affirmed.

According to Regional Director of Social Affairs Chedly Jabbari, 35 affected people, including 16 children, have been accommodated at the Rahma shelter in Sejnane.
