Africa’s Tallest Mountain Kilimanjaro on Fire
Communities living near the peak were trying to extinguish the flames, but the altitude of the fire made it difficult, according to local media. It was not immediately clear how the fire started.
A fire broke out on Tanzania’s Mount Kilimanjaro on Sunday, the country’s National Parks service said on Twitter.
An initial image showed flames on the mountain, showing an orange blaze about midway up Africa’s highest peak, with the Tanzania National Parks service saying that “efforts to extinguish it are still ongoing.”
