Preliminary evidence indicates the presence of a human cause in igniting the fire, noting that about 60 percent of fires are deliberate, reported Ammon News.

Majali added that the location of the fire led to its sustainability for a longer period due to its presence in an area where the slope was at an angle of more than 80 percent, in addition to the fact that active wind movement led to its transfer from one place to another, as there were three main fire points in the area.
