ALOR SETAR, Feb 10 (Bernama) -- Only one 'live' hotspot remains in Gunung Baling following the outbreak on Wednesday, says Fire and Rescue Department chief Mohd Jamil Mat Daud.

He said the fire detected in the central area of the mountain had previously been extinguished, but was re-ignited due to hot weather and strong winds.

"We will try to douse the fire this morning while the wind is not too strong. All the other hotspots have been fully doused," he said when contacted by Bernama today.
