Hesse: forest fire in central Hesse: firefighting helicopter requested

Cölbe (dpa / lhe) - In the Marburg-Biedenkopf district, according to the operations management, a forest area about ten football pitches caught fire. "The fire is not yet under control. We are trying to prevent it from spreading," said Stephan Schienbein, spokesman for the district, on Tuesday evening of the German Press Agency. The fire brigade is fighting the fire near the community of Cölbe-Schönstadt with around 100 emergency services. According to Schienbein, the district has taken over the command of operations and requested further reinforcements.

Two police helicopters should also help with the extinguishing work, each of which should bring 2000 liters of water from a quarry pond. The flames emanated from a nearby field that had been harvested. The fire spread quickly in the forest, which was mostly overgrown with pine and spruce, said the spokesman, who was also involved in fighting the fire as a member of the fire brigade.
