More Forest Fires in Parts of Southeastern Europe

0 0

The number of forest fires in Southeastern Europe is increasing. This is the case in Greece, for example, in the north of the Peloponnese peninsula, where residents of several places were evacuated as a precaution.

 

Forest fires also raged in Croatia and Albania.

The Greek fire brigade reports about 100 fires every day. Not all of these lead to a major fire, but the fire brigade is very vigilant because of the strong wind. Tens of thousands of hectares of forest burned down last year. This year, firefighters from other EU countries are helping Greece contain the fires as quickly as possible.

Near the central Croatian town of Novak, a 15-hectare oak forest caught fire last weekend. The fire brigade also deployed fire-fighting helicopters. Also on the island of Brac near Split, nature burned down due to the drought.

In Albania, an area with olive groves and orchards around the port city of Vlora was affected, as well as forest areas in the interior. In some places, the flames also approached villages.
