A fire has destroyed over 200 acres of Kuruminiyagala Forest Reserve in Wellawaya.

The district's Disaster Management Centre said that it is difficult to contain the fire due to dry weather conditions and strong winds.

Police, residents in the area and the tri-forces have intervened to douse the fire.

A spokesperson at Wellawaya Police said that a part of the mountain has completely destroyed due to the fire.

It is believed some people may have set the fire in an attempt to kill wild animals.
