Such fires at times are serious and can cause several losses including loss of life especially to the people around the area.

5 Such policies help people to quit smoking
If no smoking measures are put in place and much importantly taken seriously, it will be helpful to smokers because their level of smoking will acutely reduce, because of smoking times and periods will have reduced from the normal times they are used to. This will reduce their urge to smoking. The policy before has proved to help smoke addicts leave the habit.
