Several areas in the Klang Valley were covered in haze as seen from this photo taken at 2.30pm Tuesday.

KLANG: Several parts of Klang have been hit by haze that is believed to be caused by peat fires at the Jalan Kebun stretch here.

Selangor executive councillor for environment Elizabeth Wong said local authorities had discovered the fire which began on vegetable plots in the area Tuesday morning.

"Follow-up action is being initiated," said Wong, adding that Klang Municipal Council (MPK)'s quick response team, the Pantas Squad, is monitoring the areas and helping the Fire and Rescue Department at the Kesas highway, Jalan Kebun and Jalan Johan Setia.

She explained that most of the fires had been small and were extinguished.

"This time, it was relatively easier to put out the fires, with the state government using a product called PeatFirex," Wong said.

PeatFirex is a non-chemical-based product to suppress peat fires.

According to Wong, besides people starting the fires on purpose, the dry weather was also a factor.

"If the ground is dry for long periods of time, then even a smoldering cigarette can start a fire," she said.

Wong urged the public to immediately inform the Fire and Rescue Department is they sight a fire, even if it is on the roadside.

"If you see neighbours burning leaves or branches, please advise them to stop doing so.

"If they refuse, please report to your local council," said Wong.

She also said that an increase in the number of hotspots in Central Sumatra since the weekend was causing the haze in the Klang Valley over the last two days.
