Thou­sands of fire­fight­ers came to­gether to bat­tle the fire, how­ever, the wind and rough ter­rain made it chal­leng­ing for the fire­fight­ers to ex­tin­guish it, burn­ing acres of for­est and killing a lot of an­i­mals. It was re­ported that over 20 yaks and cat­tle were killed. The cause of the fire is still un­known.
