Bush fires broke out at several places in Jammu and Kashmir’s Baramulla district on Friday, officials said. The fire incidents were reported from the hills of the Khadiniyar forest area of Baramulla. The personnel and machinery of the Forest Department and the Fire and Emergency Services were trying to bring the fire under control.

The Forest Department has issued an advisory warning of the heightened risk of forest fires in Jammu and Kashmir due to continuous dry weather. With dry winter conditions and increased human activity in forested areas, the potential for devastating blazes is significant, which can cause loss of life and property, damage to soil fertility, biodiversity, and climate patterns and health hazards, the department said.
