“The fire is out of control, and human efforts alone cannot contain it,” said Top Bahadur Karki of Bagarphant. Locals are suffering from smoke inhalation, and authorities have warned residents of Bhakimle to remain vigilant as the fire encroaches.

Despite attempts by locals to extinguish the flames, the fire persists due to a lack of resources and personnel. The destruction of forests has devastated wildlife habitats and poses a significant threat to the region’s biodiversity.
