The fire with a radius of five kilometers in the jungle of the Saraiya region next to Manikpur in Chitrakoot continued for the fifth time in a row on Monday. The fire emanating from the Saraiya forest has gradually spread to Gadchapa, Loharpurwa and Pokharipurwa.With the help of the villagers, forest workers have controlled the fire, but the danger has not yet been avoided. There are some areas that fire engines cannot get into. On Monday, two small fire engines arrived at the request of the forest workers.

These vehicles were used to extinguish the forest fire from Pokhripurwa to Loharpurwa. Due to the lack of a vehicle in the high mountains, the fire continued in this area. The residents of these hamlets reported that the fire continued for five consecutive days.

The scope of the fire reached through the fields towards the parish. Forest workers have overcome this. In this regard, Kailash Prakash, DFO of the Ministry of Forestry, said that according to the information provided by forest officials in the area, there is a lot of control over the fire. The abundance of forests is slightly damaged by fire. The fire did not reach the settlement.
