Members of the Civil Protection, Royal Gendarmerie and Auxiliary Forces, together with several volunteers, managed this Sunday to put out a fire that broke out in the forests of Ait Bouli under the influence of the province of Azilal.

Local sources said the fire, which broke out on Saturday night in the Agrasif-Ait Baoli forest, saw loss of vegetation cover, before being brought under control early Sunday.

He added that a group of young people from the area faced the fire by traditional means, given the difficulty of the area and the distance from water sources, and pointed out that the firefighting teams used a tractor to transport the water to the mountain.

The fire, whose cause is still unknown, devoured about three hectares of vegetation cover, according to a source affiliated with the firefighting teams.
