After receiving the information about the blaze, over 100 troops, firefighters, militiamen and local people rushed to the scene to fight the fire.

Due to the dry weather, the participating forces worked hard to control the fire, which was finally put out by 16:30 the same day.

It is estimated that three hectares of the forest set on fire because local people were burning beehives.
