ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: A force of more than 1,500 people managed to put a fire raging through China's southwestern Yunnan province under control Thursday, state media reported. Xinhua said that although local authorities reported that the fire is under control, it has not entirely been extinguished. So far, there have been no reports of any casualties or injuries related to the incident. According to local media, about 47 percent of Yunnan is covered in vegetation, making it China's second most heavily-forested province.
