Mt. Ugo fire

During our last climb in Mt. Ugo (traverse), we encountered these hot blazing bushfire. These fires was almost blocking our path going up, it was already 9pm in the evening in the Benguet forest but still we feel the hot blazing fire burning these forest. Our guide says that it was natural in this area especially during summer season. But some says that this fire was intentionally set up by some natives to have a new growth of grass for their cattle to feed. But whatever is true, LET’S PREVENT FOREST FIRE!
Making Bonfires: In mountaineering making bonfires are prohibited, except for survival and emergency purposes. Camping area should be free from any form of fires.
