Two dead, two injured in Guizhou's forest fires

TWO people were killed and two others were injured in fires yesterday that engulfed part of the forest in the southwestern Guizhou Province, local sources said.

Two fires broke out around 4 pm in the Pengjiazhai and Fujiagou villages in Bijie city. The former was put out at 11:20 pm while firefighters are still trying to extinguish the other one.

Temperature in Bijie was 24 degree Celsius and the wind retarded firefighting work.
