According to the Geo-Informatics and Space Technology Development Agency (Gistda), there were 3,809 hot spots in Thailand as of 28th March 2020.

Most of the fire were linked to an ongoing bushfire in Doi Suthep-Pui National Park in Chiang Mai, which suddenly raged out of control late on Saturday after burning for about a week.

The fire fighting effort have been going with the help of many officials and volunteers.
