During the dry summer in 2006 a forest fire was started (start)  by lightning while a big thunderstorm was rolling (roll) over the park. Another was caused by a cigarette which had been dropped (drop) some minutes before. Soon the fires started to race (start, race) throughout the whole park.

But although thousands of firefighters fought|were fighting (fight) to save villages and houses, in the forests the fire was allowed to (allow) burn until the arrival of autumn rains.

Altogether, nearly 36% of the park was destroyed (destroy), but a year later new green could be seen (can, see) again. A ranger told his friend: “ Look, between the burnt trees stumps new grass has already come (already, come) up and just over there black berries are now growing (now, grow)!”

The other ranger said: “Next autumn there 'll be|will be (be) more food for the bears than before the fire.”
