A fire broke out on Mount Kilimanjaro (VIDEO)

A fire broke out on Mount Kilimanjaro.

A fire broke out on Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania on Sunday, the country's national parks service said on Twitter.

Initially, footage showed flames in the mountains casting an orange glow around the middle of the slopes of Africa's highest peak, and Tanzania's National Park Service said "efforts to extinguish it are still ongoing".

The local newspaper The Citizen said that those living near the top were trying to put out the flames, but the height of the fire made it difficult to fight the fire.

Kilimanjaro rises 5,895 meters above sea level.
