Fire still rages on even after two days…

September 19, 2012  

The forest fire that started on the night of September 17 in the region belonging to Victoria, Randenigala and Uduvahinna areas is still not completely extinguished. Our reporter says that parts of the sanctuary belonging to the Uduvahinna, Udupitivala, Pitadunna areas have been completely destroyed.

Even though the police and the disaster management center have been working towards completely extinguishing the fire, it has not been completely finished.  The following pictures show the fire still raging on.
