We use pumps to draw water from nearby wells in order to extinguish the fire difficultly” said U Ye Htut, Maungtaw Township Commissioner.
About 30 houses were destroyed by the fire. Investigation is under way about the fire incident. Nyaungchaung village is a village where Bengalis lived but while the fire burns, security forces check the un-burnt houses and found no one inside.
