(TAP) - Civil defence units put out a fire that broke out on Monday afternoon in a field covering 220 ha in the delegation of El Fahs (Zaghouan governorate).

Fuelled by the wind and the heatwave, the fire destroyed 50 ha of grain harvest including 35 ha of wheat and 15 ha of barley, said regional director of civil protection in Zaghouan Salem Yousfi.

The same source said an investigation was initiated by National Guard units in Zaghouan to determine the causes of the fire.
