Fire on Mount Ranti
Previously, Gunung Ranti which is on the border of the Bondowoso and Banyuwangi regions suffered a fire on Saturday (10/19/2019).
As a result, the Ijen Crater Park Tourism Area was closed. Until Sunday (10/20/2019) the hiking trail to Ijen Crater is still closed.
Head of Emergency and Logistics Agency of Banyuwangi BPBD, Eka Muharram, said based on the mapping carried out by the Banyuwangi Regional Disaster Management Agency (BPBD), the fire source came from the Bondowoso administration area.
“The area often takes place by burning land, so it spreads to the Banyuwangi administration area,” Muharam said on Sunday.
Banyuwangi BPBD has coordinated with Perhutani KPH West Banyuwangi to carry out a number of measures so that the forest fire on Mount Ranti is not widespread.
Ijen crater | Kawah ijen | Ijen volcano (2386 m) is an active composite volcano located within the Pleistocene Ijen Caldera (old volcanic crater), at the easternmost part of Java island. The visible superficial manifestations of the hydrothermal system of Kawah Ijen’s activity consist of the world’s largest hyper acidic lake on Earth, a few thermal discharges and crater fumaroles which produce significant amounts of native sulfur.
The Ijen caldera complex measures approximately 210 km2. Its name is linked to that of the only currently active volcano within the caldera, Kawah Ijen. The caldera contains more than 15 post-caldera volcanic cones making it one of the top recommended area in the world for stunning volcanic scenery.
