Wildfires Eating Into Inland Woods

The sweltering summer days are heating up with blazing fires hitting the forests in the northeast. 
Qarkhoud protected area in Bojnourd County, North Khorasan Province, was reportedly struck by a fire on Sunday morning.
“The fire was put out by park rangers and environmentalists, but unfortunately, after it had destroyed over two hectares of woodlands,” IRNA quoted Mousa Valizadeh, a senior official at the regional Department of Environment.
“Four teams from the nearby DOE offices and three from the governorate were dispatched to extinguish the blaze,” he said.
