On Monday, Tanzanian residents, students, and firefighters all fought fire that broke out on Sunday on Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain.

The harsh winds on Sunday had fanned the flames but have been reported to have since died down. There are no injuries or deaths reported so far, but the fire is still ongoing.

Mount Kilimanjaro rises to nearly 6,000 meters (20,000 feet) above sea level, but the residents that reported the fire saw the blaze burning on the lower part of the mountain.
