An aerial survey showed that the fire has been under control as of 12:00 p.m. Thursday. Firefighters and helicopters have been sent to clean the remaining smoke from the fire.

Nearly 1,000 firefighters have been sent to the frontline after the fire broke out on the Haosengou forest farm in Arxan on April 30.

High mountains, steep slopes, dense vegetation and strong winds that change direction have posed challenges to fighting the fire.
