A police investigation is currently underway in search of a group of persons who set fire to the roots of a large Palu or Ceylon Ironwood tree in the centre of the Dambulla city.

According to our correspondent, the blaze was doused by the police and Dambulla Municipality council, while it spread up to the middle of the tree trunk.

Our correspondent further noted that the incident may have posed a threat to the buildings nearby and pedestrians passing by, if the tree had suddenly collapsed due to the blaze.
