Odisha has the highest number of fire incidents in the country.

Amid the raining fire from the sky and the extreme heat, fire incidents have become common. Every day there is news of fire from some corner. While the fire in the forests of Uttarakhand was not extinguished, these flames also spread to the forests of Chhattisgarh. About 85,000 fire incidents have been reported in Chhattisgarh alone in the last 5 years. However, if we talk about the country, in terms of fire, not Chhattisgarh, but Odisha is number one.

According to the Indian Forest Survey report, among the top 5 states most affected by fires, Odisha is on top, Andhra Pradesh is second, Uttarakhand is third, Maharashtra is fourth and Chhattisgarh is fifth.

According to the Chhattisgarh Forest Fire MIS report, this year, due to various reasons, fire incidents have been reported at 14689 places in the first 5 months with the highest 2286 in Bijapur. According to Forest Management Information System Nawa Raipur, 3400.97 hectares area has been burnt to ashes. The main cause of the fire incidents is said to be Naxalism and negligence of local people along with rising heat. Due to this reason the incidence of fire in forests and other areas is increasing rapidly. Forest department officials claim that fire incidents have reduced compared to previous years.

What is Early Warning System?

Early warning system is the main reason behind the reduction in fire incidents. The forest from Bastar to Surguja is connected with FSI’s early warning system at bit level. Early warning system detects rise in forest temperature. In addition, forest personnel have constructed several fire safety lines in the Forest Assisted Natural Reservation which help in preventing incidents like fire.

By the time information was received, the fire had spread

To monitor forest fires, forest fires are monitored by the Forest Service of India. But the report reaches after 4 to 5 hours and by then the fire has spread to the entire forest. Other causes of forest fires are mahua pickers and wild mushroom growers. These people believe that setting fire increases production.
