A wildfire in the forest near Chaloem Phrakiat Thai Prachan National Park in Ratchaburi that created a haze over the area was limited today (January 20), Forest Preserve Unit 3 head Suchart Buabang said.

He said strong wind and dry leaves had helped the blaze to spread to the perimeter and mountain terrain, preventing officials from putting out the wildfire completely.

Officials are monitoring the area to keep the fire from spreading. 

Some areas have no equipment to put out wildfires, and dust pollution is also a concern that national park officers must prepare for and deal with.

The blaze was started when people hunting animals ignited a fire.
