Aqua bottles • Agats
Agats / The settlers of Agats attempt to extinguish the fire in Agats using only bottles of Aqua mineral water, a fire in which over 80 heads of family and family members combined were affected. The fire on May 25th 2015 in Agats is the biggest conflagration in the history of Asmat. Apart from laboriously emptying the mineral water bottles, or using sewage water to water the fire, there is no rescue options whatsoever from the government. The fire eventually stopped due to high tide, light rain, the land breeze, and considerable amount of effort by those who live around the area.
