On Tuesday, there were nearly 20 fires in seven Mae Hong Son districts – Muang, Khun Yuam, Mae La Noi, Mae Sariang, Sop Moei, Pang Mapha and Pai, according to the Mae Hong Son Centre for Forest Fires and Haze Prevention and Mitigation.
Ban Huai Ton Noon village headman Udom Mansuksak said people passing through the Huai Ton Noon border crossing had reported that the forest fire on the Myanmar side would reach Thailand in one or two days.
He urged paramilitary rangers to check the situation, which he believed would spill over faster to Thailand because of gusty winds.
