A vast area of the Meedumpitiya forest reserve in Passara was destroyed by a bush fire that broke out last night. The forest reserve was still ablaze even this morning. The Forest Conservation Officials of the area said the poachers often set fire to the forest reserves during the drought to track down wild animals.  (Pics  Prasanna Padmasiri)

    What a crime. It got the name meedumpitiya because that area was eternally covered with a mist - breathtakingly beautiful. Now all that is gone.
    Anura Yapa is not a match for Champika. All the officers were dead scared of Champika and they were on red aler when he was the minister. Now officers are fast asleep.
