Fire breaks out at Murree hills


A large number of trees were damaged due to the fire, which spread for acres.

Locals called Rescue 1122 fire tenders but they could not get to the fire since there is no road access in the forest.

Rescue staff and firefighters also tried to manually put out the fire, Arshad Bhutta, Rescue 1122 media coordinator said.

Locals say fires break out every year in the dry season but no measures have ever been taken to address the issue.
