After Amazon and California now it’s Japan. On 25th February 2021, Japan saw a wildfire breakout in the rural are near Tokyo. The reason behind the wildfire is unclear. The fire still continues to spread in spite of the hard work and efforts of the firefighters.
It’s the fourth day since the first wildfire fire broke in Ashikaga in Tochigi. Already 207 households are ordered to move to another place as it’s very close to the forest.
Both the area are not close to each other and are away.

Firefighters ate tirelessly working on the ground along with the military helicopter on top. The efforts go wasted as the fire is not getting stop at all.
According to the sources, one man so far has suffered Burns and was hospitalized. No other humans are said to have been affected due to the wildfire.100 acres of the forest got destroyed along with the mountain temple situated in the forest.
