(TAP) - The Jebel Serj fire was put out on Wednesday afternoon after several hours of intervention. About ten hectares of pine forests had been ravaged by fire, Civil Protection Regional Director Colonel Major Adel Labidi told TAP.

Civil protection and forest management deployed pedestrian teams to fight the flames, because of the steep terrain that prevents access to rolling equipment.

The fire had broken out on Tuesday in Jebel Serj, at the level of the delegation of Oueslatia (governorate of Kairouan), then it extended to the part located in the governorate of Siliana under the influence of the sirocco wind.
