DA NANG — Phosphorus ammunition has been identified to be the cause of a 100-ha forest fire that occurred last Wednesday in central Da Nang Province's Lien Chieu District.

While authorities do not know how the ammunition was set off, it is believed to have been left over from the war in the forest's section 11 on the top of Hai Van Mountain Pass – the site of a former airstrip used by soldiers heading for nearby battlefields, said Tran Van Luong, head of the provincial Forest Management Department.

Local authorities have planned to ensure safety in the section of the forest, said Luong. — VNS
