Experts attribute the surge in fire incidents in Kashmir to a prolonged dry spell that has gripped the valley. The lack of precipitation and moisture in the air has created an environment conducive to rapid fire spread, turning seemingly routine incidents into major disasters.

The victims of the Pakherpora fire are now grappling with the aftermath, facing the daunting task of rebuilding their lives from the ashes. Local relief efforts are underway, with authorities providing immediate assistance to those affected and coordinating with disaster response agencies to ensure a comprehensive recovery process.
