Bulgaria — The wildfire in Central Balkan National Park does not put settlements in danger, Nikolay Nikolov, director of Fire Safety and Civil Protection DG, told FOCUS News Agency.
The fire broke out on Monday close to the village of Neshkovtsi, northern municipality of Troyan, and has not been extinguished yet. There is no risk of its spreading to new areas, because it has been contained. So far the teams and equipment used to put it out are sufficient, said the firefighting service chief and added it was hard to identify the reasons for the fire for now.
The national park suspects arson and has referred the issue to the Prosecutor’s Office, but Nikolay Nikolov specified this is the opinion of the national park and not of the firefighting service.
The dry snap in combination with high temperatures, which is quite unseasonable, is a prerequisite for fires, he added.
