In a tragic incident, around 300 people were struck in Seshachalam forest of Tiruamal as fire surrounded them. At one point, Tirumala fire service crew declared helpless as they are out of water and the people struck in fire are media persons and other TDD staff. Wild fire spreading with heavy winds is putting the people at tense in Tirumala Kakula kona.

Unexpectedly, Visakhapatnam Navy denied coming down to Tirumala on controlling the wild fire in Seshachalam forest, as they are not having any fire extinguishing Helicopters with them. Fire DG Ramesh states that almost all fire service engines from Nellore, prakasam are at Seshachalam forest to control fire.

The fire is said to have started at a valley point and wild fire is spreading fire at rapid speed, not allowing crew to control fire at instance. Fire Service officials are confident of stopping or slowing down the fire if they get to know the direction of fire spread, but not sure on what point the damage is going to be.
