Pakistan Army Continues Efforts To Douse Balochistan Forest Fire

RAWALPINDI: Pakistan Army on Sunday continued its efforts to douse a fire in a Pine Forest near Shergali in district Sherani of Balochistan province, said Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR).

According to the ISPR, PDMA Balochistan in coordination with NDMA is carrying out relief efforts and organizing firefighting activities along with the maximum support from Pakistan Army and FC Balochistan.

It said that the fire is mostly on mountain tops away from population centres but continues to spread due to hot weather, inaccessible nature of the terrain and dry winds.

The military’s media wing said that although the population is living eight to 10 kilometers from the fire site, they have shifted 10 families residing in isolated houses to a medical relief camp.
