There is a fire in Annandale Forest

Late on Sunday night, a forest fire started in Shimla’s Annandale ward’s Gol Pahari neighborhood.

Area Councillor Urmila Kashyap said that the fire began about 5:30 p.m. and grew larger over time.

“We have notified the fire station, but as of right now, no one has shown up to put out the fire,” she said. Even though the fire is now distant from any human settlement, Kashyap noted that if it is not contained, it may approach.

On the other hand, a fire station representative said that as soon as the forest fire was reported, trucks were sent to the location.

“We have received four calls about fire occurrences from other locations as well. To put out the fire, we have sent out the trucks,” he said.
