Firefighters tackle blaze in Tulkarem

Oct. 4, 2011 12:39 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 4, 2011 12:39 P.M.)
TULKAREM (Ma’an) -- Firefighters contained a large fire which ripped through an area of olive trees in the village of Beit Lid in the northern West Bank on Monday evening.

The blaze was extinguished after damaging over 200 olive trees, the civil defense said in a statement.

Witnesses said the fire was caused by negligence as farmers set fire to grass on their land and winds spread the fire across the olive fields.
