The fire started in Dariganga soum (administrative subdivision) of the province before noon on Sunday, and spread to the territory of neighboring Erdenetsagaan soum which borders Xilingol League, north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.

Hundreds of people, including firefighters, local residents and soldiers, fought to contain the fire.
