Bhubaneswar : After around two weeks of wildfire raging in Similipal forests , the much awaited  rain accompanied by hailstorm took place in some portions of forest in Mayurbhanj district that not only doused wildfire but also brought joy among Forest personnel engaged in tackling the fire.

A woman Forester, Sneha Dhal who has been involved in dousing the forest fire reportedly in Similipal jumped with delight as the rain started pouring in the forest.

The video of the woman Forester jumping amid rainfall and saying the forest fire has been put out went viral on social media.

Today afternoon, rain and hailstorm occurred in many parts of Pithabata Forest Range and other parts under Similipal forest. The sudden rainfall has brought little respite to residents of forest fringe villages in the area.
