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

Locals said fire fighters from the Palestinian civil defense department and the Hebron municipality worked to control the fire, which burned for several hours.

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.
