Lebanon — Fire fighters are battling a forest fire which erupted in north Lebanon Tuesday as residence call on authorities for additional assistance.

The fire is reportedly raging on a hill between the villages of al-Bira and Sendyaneh and is approaching the village of Majdal, all in Akkar.

The blaze completely destroyed an SUV belonging to the Municipality of al-Bira.

With just one Civil Defense truck battling the blaze, residents called on the Army to send additional firefighting trucks to contain the fire and prevent it from spreading to nearby residential homes.
