Burning enthusiasm

Rwandan honey hunters are being urged to be more considerate of their environment and to stop burning the environment when collecting honey. In a curious and repeated typo, the article keeps talking about creating "smock" to get the honey:
“The district authorities advised us to form an association. We formed one and we were given a plot of land where we have established our firm. We have also been sensitised on environmental friendly methods that do not involve making fire to smock out bees for honey,” Birindwa explained.
But the group seem to be making advances and having realised the value of honey are starting to get modern hives.
