Hřensko (Děčínsko) – Rain cooled the fire scene in Czech Switzerland. Today, for the first time, the drones did not detect any risky location during the morning survey. Firefighters discovered one while on a mission through the now muddy terrain. There are 91 volunteer firefighters on site, 41 professional. It rains intermittently above Hřensk. Regional fire department spokesman Milan Rudolf told ČTK.
In the field, firefighters and national park rangers can breathe better, the ground cools down, it is wet to a depth of about two centimeters, and the water returns to the puddles. “Everyone welcomed the rain. On the other hand, the roads become muddy. The rock massifs are very slippery. The logs that the firemen were walking on can now only be crossed with great care. The ash turns into sticky mud, so it is necessary to clean your shoes every now and then,” he said Rudolph. Even the firemen’s clothes are wet. At the same time, volunteer units bivouac directly in the places near which they intervene. Clothes and shoes dry in cars.
The drones didn’t take off until 10am today due to the weather. But they didn’t get everywhere because of the thick haze. They will take off in the afternoon. On Gabriela’s path, the firemen discovered one hot spot, which they doused with water. Firefighters and park rangers have errands spread throughout the day. According to Rudolf, he now has to pay extra attention to safety, the roads are also difficult to pass.
According to the police, the fire probably started in Malinový dol. Approximately 6,000 firefighters and 400 pieces of equipment took turns at the scene. Firefighters extinguished the fire after 20 days.
