Provincial firefighters of over 1,400 people mobilized to the sites. Meanwhile, rescue teams of adjacent Guizhou, Yunnan provinces and Chongqing Municipality are prepared as reinforcements.

Sichuan fire department said some houses in Lushan County were partially damaged and it’s continuing communicating with relevant counties and towns that have been affected.

The municipal government of Ya’an has activated a Level-II emergency response, the second highest of the four-tier system of emergency responses.

China’s ministry of emergency management has also sent a team of experts to Lushan for rescue and relief operation.
