February 22, 2024

Another forest fire broke out in Hoang Lien National Park in Sa Pa Town, northern Vietnam’s Lao Cai Province on Wednesday afternoon, two days after the first that burned about 30 hectares of forests, the town’s administration reported on Thursday morning. “We have mobilized more than 600 people, including firemen, soldiers and militias, divided into four teams to access and put out the flames,” Lien said. There has yet to be a report about the forest damage caused by the fire. During the previous fire two days ago, the blaze burnt down some 30 hectares of forests in the park, including 26 hectares of poor forests and four hectares of planted forests, according to initial reports. Earlier on February 6, four days ahead of the Tet (Lunar New Year) festival, Lao Cai authorities sent an urgent dispatch requesting localities to take measures for fire prevention and control across the province amid the dry season.
