A fire broke out yesterday in the wetland reserve at Hatton Maskeliya Commercial area.

The area that caught fire is a 25 acre section belonging to the wetland reserve.

According to our reporter, the fire has been extinguished by this time.

It is suspected that a group of people have set fire to this wetland reserve last night.

Due to the prevailing dry weather, the fire had spread rapidly. However with great effort by the residents in the area, the fire has been finally extinguished, our reporter further added.
