Fires during the summer happens everyday and planes going back and forth to get water from the sea is a common sight these days. Most fires are started by the locals here as many do not understand that the soil is very dry and fires also moves under the soil and can start in totally different part later even if you extinguish the fire. People throw out their cigarettes from the car and creates fires by the roads and people burn their soils under high risk periods of the year. Last year we had to start a fight with our neighbor to make him understand that we do not want him to burn his soil during the summer time as he can not control the fire. We had to threat him with a police report to make him stop. This year he has not started a fire….yet.

Br?nder under sommaren h?nder varje dag och flygplan som g?r fram och tillbaka f?r att ta upp vatten fr?n havet ?r en vanlig syn dessa dagar. De flesta br?nder startas av lokalbefolkningen h?r, eftersom de inte f?rst?r att marken ?r v?ldigt torr och br?nderna r?r sig ocks? under jorden och kan b?rja p? en helt annan plats senare ?ven om du sl?cker elden. M?nniskor sl?nger sina cigaretter fr?n bilen som skapar br?nder p? v?garna, och m?nniskor br?nner sina markar under h?ga riskperioder p? ?ret. F?rra ?ret var vi tvungna att br?ka med v?r granne f?r att f? honom att f?rst? att vi inte vill att han ska br?nna sin jord under sommartiden eftersom han inte kan kontrollera elden. Vi var tvungna att hota honom med en polisanm?lan f?r att f? honom att sluta. I ?r har han inte startat en eld …. ?n.
