Land and forest fires in Central Kalimantan occur almost every year and cause losses to the community, especially in terms of health. The decline in public health due to smoke generated from fires requires serious handling. Fire incidents are caused by several interrelated factors, therefore it is necessary to understand the types of land fires, especially peatlands. Fire excess is mainly air pollution, which contains substances harmful to health. Therefore, this paper discusses these potentials. The purpose of this understanding is to prepare comprehensive prevention strategies.
