QUANG NINH (VNS) — A fire destroyed several hectares of a pine forest in Ha Long City's Hung Thang Ward in coastal Quang Ninh yesterday evening.

The fire, which broke out around 7 pm, was controlled after two hours because the sloping area and strong winds prevented the fire engines from approaching the blaze.

On Saturday, the firefighters had detected and extinguished another forest fire in the city's Cai Lan Hill.

The weather in the last few days has been very hot and humid, with the temperature hovering above 36 degrees Celsius. — VNS
