• Fire Rips Through Miankaleh  Protected Area Once Again

    A suspicious wildfire swept through the Miankaleh protected area in the east of Mazandaran Province once again and burned at least 50 hectares of vegetation in the area. 
    This is the sixth time that natural areas of Miankaleh have fallen victim to flames this year, raising suspicion as to the cause of the incident. 
    According to a member of Zagh Marz Village Council, the blaze started on Wednesday near a livestock building and was put out after midnight by park rangers, firefighters and locals. 
    "Plants that had dried up in the summer heat made the operations tougher, but it was finally contained," said Jamal Aboutalebi Abdolmaleki.
