Experts criticize deficiencies in explosive ordnance clearance and firefighting

"There is no more money to clear forests," said Plum. "But in the case of blast sites from the post-war period, you should think again about not cleaning them up after all. After the war, ammunition was destroyed there on a large scale and improperly by being collected and simply blown up. However, the material was more likely to fly in the area and was not rendered harmless."

Meanwhile, the German Fire Brigade Association warned of the dangers of fighting fires on areas contaminated with ordnance. "Actually, we need extinguishing tanks, i.e. a protected fire engine," said Ulrich Cimolino from the fire brigade association to the newspapers of the Bayern media group. "Germany doesn't have a single one." There would be a lack of firefighting concepts at all - and that with an ever-increasing risk of forest fires throughout Germany.

Explosions at a police detonation site in Berlin's Grunewald forest caused a major fire in the forest area in the west of the federal capital. Fighting the fire was extremely difficult given the detonations.
