As per the information, the forest is covered by the dry leaves of the trees, which fell during the springtime. Due to the presence of dry leaves in the forest, the fire spread rapidly and across a big area.

Efforts are being made to douse the fire. The district administration said that they are even moving ahead to take help from the Indian Air Force.

As per an official, the fire was initially reported around 2.05 pm, with authorities suspecting that dry leaves, trees, and grass may have ignited due to the summer heat. However, the exact cause is still under investigation. Officials assured the public that there is no need for concern or panic. The forest, covering an area of 40-50 acres, presents a challenge for firefighters, who are striving to fully extinguish the blaze.
