Georgia — Firemen have been fighting fire in Adigeni region since yesterday, but the disaster has already destroyed 15 hectares of woods.

The fire broke out in Borjomi-Kharagauli reserved park.

Brigades from Adigeni and Axaltsikhe are trying to localize the fire but they say it’s difficult to reach the place in fire. Strong win is another problem obstructing the firemen to work effectively.

Experts presume the fire could be caused by the negligence of locals, however, locals say it was deliberately lit, because the woods are cut and those who are involved in logging business just wanted to remove tracks.
