Norway — A forest fire which threatened several homes and cabins as well as a gas station near Flekkefjord in the county of Vest-Agder, was brought under control Saturday evening.

Around 20 firefighters fought the blaze for several hours. Shortaage of water made their work difficult, NRK reports.

Around 120 acres of forest was destroyed by the fire, but several cabins which were surrounded by the flames were saved.

The danger of forest fires is high in all of southeastern Norway, and fire fighters were in action in both in Kvinesdal and Hedmark, as well as in Rogaland in the west, earlier in the week.
