Representative Razi Al-Hajj posted a video on Twitter, showing the army helicopters working to put out the Baskinta fire.
Hajj was quick to appeal to the army to intervene to help put out the Baskinta fire that broke out at dawn. He also contacted the Director General of Civil Defense, Brigadier Raymond Khattar, and asked the Baskinta youth to support the elements and provide all required assistance.
Hajj tweeted: “About eight in the morning, army helicopters arrived at the scene of the fire in an attempt to put it out, after the fire at night consumed large areas of the pine forest.”
