A wildfire incident from my village

in OCD5 months ago (edited)

Wildfires occur naturally in the dry regions and are a part of the ecosystem. But, what would you say when they are man-made and caused by sheer human carelessness?

One such incident i recently got to witness was when the fire was caused by either somebody throwing a burning cigarette butt in the bush or careless burning of the garbage by a family in forest. The exact cause remained unknown, but fortunately, a couple of guys intervened and stopped the fire from spreading far.

Now, let me show you how i came across everything, while passing through the adjacent street.

The situation was almost in control, when i reached at the spot and there were only a few patches of fire that remained left, with smoke all over the place. But, still, the precaution needed to be taken whenever the fire tried to go beyond a limit. And, because most of the pine trees remain wet and green throughout the year, their branches came to be quite handy in extinguishing the fire.
