Fire extinguishing equipment will soon be dispatched to the Iraqi part of Hour-al Azim Marshes to put out the wildfire still burning the reeds, a senior official at the Department of Environment said.
It has been more than a week since the fire hit the marshes straddling western borders with Iraq, first burning the Iranian side but further spreading westward into Iraqi soil.
However, according to Ahmadreza Lahijanzadeh, head of Khuzestan's office of the Department of Environment, the blaze was extinguished in the Iranian part of the wetland and special equipment borrowed from a European country together with Iranian helitanks will soon be sent to the troubled area in Iraqi lands, Mehr News Agency reported.
