Description Forest and land fires are not a rare phenomenon in Indonesia, especially in Riau Province. This research aims to explain the law enforcement of forest and land fire crimes in District of Indragiri Hilir, Riau Province. The method used in this research is socio-legal research. Based on Article 50 Paragraph (3) Letter d of Law Number 41 of 1999 it is stated that everyone is prohibited from burning forests. In line with that, based on Article 69 Paragraph (1) Letter h of Law Number 32 of 2009 it is stated that everyone is prohibited from clearing land by burning.
