Senior Chinese leader Zhou Yongkang on Wednesday urged greater efforts to prevent forest fires in the dry spring season.

In a written instruction, Zhou, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China's Central Committee, also called for scientific fire-fighting systems to avoid fatalities.

Vice Premier Hui Liangyu also made a written instruction that called for timely fire-fighting efforts to reduce as much as possible the loss of property and ensure the safety of fire-fighters and the public.

At a teleconference on Wednesday, Jia Zhibang, director of the State Forestry Administration (SFA), urged local authorities to step up monitoring of forest fires.

From November to January, China reported 1,945 forest fires, which damaged 5,112 hectares of forests and killed two people, SFA statistics show.
