S.T.A.R.T has activated just TEAM 1 at 20:45 with TEAM 2 & 3 on standby, these efforts are commended by the authorities as well as the members of the public who find themselves afflicted with this matter.

The teams will work on rotating shifts, with two back up teams ready to respond should an incident occur. These fires are becoming a major problem because it puts other people in danger and they lose their possessions, which is completely unforgivable.
