Five days after intense fire- fighting measures taken by Army, Air Force and district administration, fire on hills of Mount Abu has been doused.

No fresh incident of fire has been reported on the Abu hills, circle officer, Vijay Pal Singh told PTI.

He said that Sun-set point and honeymoon point were opened for the tourist today and restriction on boating in Nakki Lake was also lifted.

However, fire tenders have been asked to remain alert as a precautionary measure.
