Previously, the blaze occurred on the mountain range of Hoa Khe and An Ngai villages in Hoa Son commune, Hoa Vang district.

After receiving the news, the Military Commands of Da Nang City and Hoa Vang District in association with Brigade 74 of the General Department II mobilized over 300 troops and militiamen to extinguish the blaze.

Thanks to the smooth coordination among participating forces, the blaze was put under control at 10:00 a.m. on May 25. However, it broke out again due to dry weather and was only controlled at 7:30 a.m. the following day.

According to initial estimates, the blaze destroyed 10 hectares of Melaleuca forests and wild plants. The cause of the forest fire is currently under investigation.
