Fire Department spokesman Andrew Gausden told the BBC that the fire had apparently not been triggered. He said it quickly spread through dry undergrowth.

"It's unusual to have a fire of this size at night, which seems to consolidate before people notice the fire," he told the foothills.

Ashdown Ranger Forest Guard Chris Sutton told the BBC that wildlife and insects would quickly populate the area.

"Everything is not lost – we will have grass within four weeks and you probably will not know that much has happened here in six months," Sutton said.

Two fires damaged the same forest in February. [19659006] The Associated Press contributed to this report.
