In Horní Malá Úpa in the Giant Mountains, the pension was engulfed in flames. People managed to escape

Six fire brigades with seven tanks and a car ladder set out for the fire at 19:11. “When the firefighters arrived, the flames penetrated the roof,” the spokeswoman said. According to her, the flames hit the attic of the pension. After managing the fire, firefighters inside the building began to look for possible hidden foci.

Firefighters obtained water sources for firefighting from a local hydrant and retention tank. “We are cooling the roof of the building from the ladder. Inside, there are three reconnaissance groups of firefighters who are extinguishing in the attic,” a spokeswoman said before 8.30pm. The main road leading through Horní Malá Úpa was closed by firefighters due to firefighting.

According to its website, the pension has 15 beds and includes a restaurant. It is located close to the main road leading from Horní Maršov to Horní Malá Úpa and to the border crossing to Poland. It is located about 50 meters from the center of the village, which lies at an altitude of 1050 meters above sea level.

In the past, building fires in the Krkonoše Mountains in many cases ended tragically and with great damage. In February 2019, a fire completely destroyed the cottage in Velká Úpa, and one person burned down in the house. In December 2019, the Bažina cottage burned down in Pec pod Sněžkou near the Javor ski slope, the damage amounting to about four million crowns. In March 2015, a 54-year-old woman died in a fire at a former hunting lodge in Horní Malá Úpa. Her husband and five-year-old grandson managed to escape from the burning building. The fire completely destroyed the object.
