At 13,25p.m an emergency alert was sounded, as news of a fire broke out.
Immediately eight fire trucks dispersed to the area between Kilomeno and Agala.
Due to the strong winds and the High category of 4 for fire alerts, the fire department did not hesitate to call for aerial backup.
20 firemen are operating in the area, and air-to-air missions with two Canadair water bombers and a helicopter are helping combat the fire.
An update later when we get more information.
