Mount Meru, Tanzania’s second highest peak  is under devastation by a raging  bush  fire that started  on Sunday  leaving hundreds of  kilometers of forest burnt to ashes.   

The thick range of forest, covering the entire windward slopes of the glacier-free mountain were being licked by flames of bush fires reported to have erupted tree days ago on smaller scale and grew into uncontrollable bowls of fire.
By the time we went to press this week it was still not clear how far the situation has been brought under control.


Teams from the Tanzania National Parks authority, the Meru forestry department and various residents in the lush vicinity had been working around the clock to contain the flames but so far little success is being achieved.
more details coming
