HEBRON (Ma'an) -- A forest fire broke out near the southern West Bank village of Beit Kahil late Friday, locals told Ma'an.

The fire spread quickly through dry trees and weeds, residents said.

A number of residents provided assistance to the fire fighters, who managed to put out the fire after nearly four hours, locals added.

No injuries or damages were reported.
