Vietnam — Nhan Dan – A fire broke out in Son Tra Special Used Forest Reserve in the central province of Da Nang, at around 6pm on August 30.

Nearly 300 people including firefighters and local residents managed to stamp out the fire so as to prevent it spreading wide, but till the noon of August 31 the fire had been put out.

Initial estimate showed that 1.5 hectares of special-used forest were burned.

The reason is under investigation. However, with many licenses have been being granted for ecological tourism business right in buffer zone of the forest, the risk of fires remains high.


Firefighters are stamping out the fire.
