Several other fire incidents have caused massive devastations. Every year during the winter season, Arunachal witnesses number of fire accidents. However, people as well as authority concern do not seem to be learning any lesson from the repeated fire incidents. The state government should conduct proper study in this regard and try to find a long term solution to this issue. The study should involve fire department as well as local people. Also the number of fire station should be increased and more number of fire tending vehicles should be purchased. On their part, the citizens should learn lesson from such kind of repeated fire incident and take measures.
