The blaze occurred at 17:00, threatening the 220kV power line.

After receiving the information, firefighters of Thua Thien - Hue province went to the scene with six fire engines.


Due to the difficult terrain, the force found it hard to approach the blaze.

Thus, the provincial Military Command mobilized over 300 troops to join hands with local people and staff of the provincial Power Transmission Company to fight the forest fire.

It took the firefighting forces over two hours to get the fire under control.
