Bulgaria —  The huge fire between the towns of Ostar kamak and Ivanovo is now under control. The firefront of 3 km has now been put out, regional authorities reported.

The natural distater spread across 3000 dka, and most of the damaged areas were full of pine trees. Reasons for the fire reamin unknown, but an investigation is ongoing to establish if it was in fact an arson.

Thanks to the active efforts of regional authorities, volunteers and firefighters the damage has been limited to the forest and did not spread across nearby towns.

Most probably the mayor of the Harmanli municipality will issue an order for the state of emergency to be lifted by the end of the day.
