- Fire at Mount Abu combated by air force, army
- Helicopters throwing water on areas near hill station
- Fire still not entirely under control on Day 4: officials
"70% of the fire is under control but (it's) still not enough for comfort," a government official told NDTV this morning.
The fire began on Friday in the thickly-forested area and the cause has not yet been determined. Air Force helicopters are busy with "Operation Bambi Bucket" - showering down water on the worst-affected areas.
Yesterday, thick winds spread the flames, with helicopters being used to combat them and forest department officers working on the ground for emergency services.
The Army was also requested to help yesterday in providing assistance.
