Forest fires in Goa

Forest fires in Goa

Described as the worst forest fires, Goa is fighting multiple wildfires within the wildlife sanctuaries of the state (that cover the hill ranges of the Western Ghats). At least 48 fires have been reported since March 5, according to the state forest department. Although the fire incidents in hill areas are attributed to rising temperatures, an enquiry has also been initiated to determine the cause. Goa, much like the rest of the country, has been witnessing above-average temperatures since February.
