The authorities in Tanzania suspect that porters who were warming food for a group of mountain climbers may have accidentally started a fire that broke out on the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro.

Tanzania National Parks official Pascal Shelutete said though they are still investigating, it seems the fire that was lit to prepare food for the tourists torched the dry vegetation in the area and spread quickly.

He indicated that the fire is now under control and the department is ensuring that climbing activities are not affected.

Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak, is a popular tourist destination and tens of thousands of people climb it every year.
