Nepal — Wildfire that broke out at Dharampani Forest in Bandevi in Palpa district in western Nepal three days ago has still not been put out on Sunday.

Police and army personnel have been trying to put out the inferno, according to district forest office Palpa, some 170 km west of Kathmandu.
The forest staffers informed that efforts were made all night to control the wildfire.
