DEHRADUN: Following scattered rainfall in Uttarakhand, forest fires across the hill state on Wednesday slowly began to scale down after creating havoc for the past one week. Scattered rains occurred at a number of places on Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning which in turn helped in extinguishing a number of the blazes, said Man Singh, the nodal officer of the state forest department on forest fires.

"Rains occurred last night at number of places and we expect these fire incidents to come down," said Singh. (IANS)
