At about 17:00 on May 7th, a forest fire broke out at the junction of Xide County and Mianning County in Liangshan Prefecture. The east line of the fire site was the main development direction. The west wind of the fire site was 4 to 5, and the terrain was steep, making it difficult to pounce.
At 4 a.m. on May 8th, the Sichuan Provincial Emergency Management Department urgently mobilized 280 forest firefighters from the Sichuan Forest Fire Brigade to rush to the fire. Among them, 150 people from Liangshan Forest Fire Brigade are responsible for the fire site in Xide County, and 130 people from Aba Prefecture Forest Fire Brigade Mianning Station are responsible for the fire site in Mianning County.
At 5 o'clock in the morning, the Aba State Forest Fire Detachment first arrived at the fire site and quickly put out the fire in the fire site. The Marcon Brigade and the Wenchuan Brigade, which belonged to them, used water pumps and conventional machinery in a coordinated manner to fight hard along the left and right wings of the fire line.
At 5:30, the Xichang Brigade of Liangshan Prefecture Forest Fire Brigade carried a water pump to open a breakthrough on the south line and slammed the fire line east. The direct brigade carried conventional equipment and local fire fighting teams on foot to the east line of the fire site to block the fire head.
At present, the main leaders of the Sichuan Forest Fire Brigade have rushed to the front of the fire site to command, and more than 600 local people have cooperated with the forest firefighting to carry out fire fighting. Among them, 400 people set up isolation belts on the front line of the fire site in Xide County. (Source of Liu Zhongjun and Zeng Peng: Sichuan Forest Fire Brigade)
