The Burning of Sri Lanka

Rawana's men tied the  tail of Hanuman  with clothes, poured oil on it and lit it. The monkey with the burning tail then was taken in a procession to humiliate him. Upon release, he jumped from house to house and all wooden structures started catching fire from his tail. Whole island of Lanka started burning in no time.

hanuman, after ensuring that imprisoned Sita was safe, proceeded to sea-shore and extinguished the fire of his tail. He leisurely and gleefully watched the burning of Lanka.

Hanuman then crossed the sea and joined back his eagerly waiting clan. He reported the matter and all of them heaved sigh of relief, after learning the 
whereabouts of  Sita. All proceeded to Rishyamooka mountain where Rama was putting up. Hanuman presented the jewel of  Sita to Rama. He recognized it at once, and hugged Hanuman.

Sugreeva organized his monkey army and all proceeded to southern sea with Rama and Laxman.
