The situation with the forest fire in Saxon Switzerland is still serious. There are neither positive nor negative changes, says the spokesman for the district office of the Saxon Switzerland-Eastern Ore Mountains, Thomas Kunz. "The fires are in a relatively controllable range." The development depends on the weather conditions. The fire department continues to fight the ground fire and dig trenches, Kunz said.
The fire broke out in the Bohemian Switzerland National Park in the Czech Republic a week ago and then spread to the Saxon Switzerland National Park. According to the authorities there, the fire on the Czech side is under control.
