NEGARA, - Within a day, Monday (9/9), there were two fires in the Jembrana Regency area. In fact, the fire in the Pulukan Rubber Plantation area, Pekutatan District, was the umpteenth time in the last two weeks. The exact cause of the Perusda Bali land fire is not yet known. 
Monday morning, a fire broke out at a community-owned wooden warehouse on Jalan Sandat, Kelurahan Baler Bale Agung, Negara District. Luckily the fire can be extinguished immediately before it spreads to other parts of the warehouse which contain flammable wood. The fire consumed a number of logs. Allegedly the trigger for the fire came from incense. 
The warehouse owner, I Ketut Wirasa (57), said the burning point was close to the incense that was previously lit and was still burning. Not realizing it, the fire spread and enlarged until it engulfed the wood near the incense. The fire that occurred at 07.00 Wita, was first known by I Komang Budiantara (53), one of the local residents. Flames were visible from inside the warehouse fence on the East side. 
Residents around trying to put out the fire. The fire truck then came and put out the fire before it spread to another pile of wood. The fire can be extinguished for about 20 minutes with three fire trucks. Some items in the warehouse burn like wood ready to sell, including wet teak. In addition, sawdust beside the serkel machine. 
In the afternoon a fire struck the rubber plantation in Pekutatan. At around 3:30 pm, officers from Damkar received information on a rubber plantation fire located in Sumbermis, Banjar Pasar, Pekutatan Village. About one hectare of land was burnt and until the afternoon the cause was unknown. Officers had difficulty entering because of quite heavy terrain at the scene of the fire. The community together with plantation employees participated in putting out the fire. 
The Head of Community Protection in the Field of PMK Satpol PP Jembrana I Putu Prananjaya when asked for confirmation confirmed the two fires that were handled by the firefighters at Baler Bale Agung and Pekutatan.
