Local communities living near Mount Kilimanjaro are working hard to put a fire currently burning on Africa’s highest peak.

Both the Kilimanjaro National Park and the Tanzanian National Parks service confirmed the fire broke out late Sunday afternoon.

Tanzania’s park’s service posted a blurry photograph on its Twitter account of what appeared to be Mount Kilimanjaro with several pockets of flames burning on it, with the message:

The cause of the fire has not been determined at this time.
