Burning grass causes haze in Malaybalay mountains
Grass and forest fires are becoming frequent in Malaybalay, Bukidnon due to the dry spell.
ABS-CBN reported that haze due to the fires has covered the mountains of Malaybalay.
ABS-CBN’s regional report said Bukidnon is grappling with water shortage as grasses continue to dry up.
Nine grassfires have reportedly occurred in the province since January but local fire authorities only responded to six.
The weather bureau said the El Nino is supposed to reach its peak this month, weaken starting in April and dissipate by the end of July.
