Firefighters struggling to put out huge fire in Iran’s Lorestan Province

The director general of the Crisis Management Department in the western Iranian province of Lorestan says firefighters are facing an uphill task containing a massive fire that broke out in Poldakhter.

Mehdi Pazoki added that high temperatures of over 50° Celsius and the rugged terrain of the Seyed Soheileddin and Khers region in Poldokhtar have made it difficult for the firefighters to extinguish the blaze.

He also said two helicopters have been dispatched and eight sorties of flights have been carried out in the area so far to dispatch firefighters to put the fire out.

There are no reports of casualties from the blaze thus far.
