Fire destroys Nilgala reserve

A fire erupted in the Nilgala reserve a few days back had torched around 100 acres of the forest, reports say.

The reserve is famous for the rare medicinal plants, the massive hardwood trees as well as well as the wide range of wildlife.

Although rangers had attempted to control the fire, they say it is an almost impossible feat due to the harsh dry climate and winds.
