Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania: Despite the rain, the risk of forest fires has only decreased regionally

Malchin/Rostock (dpa/mv) - The long-awaited rain has only reduced the risk of fire in forests and on fields in Mecklenburg and Western Pomerania regionally. As the state forest institute in Malchin (Mecklenburg Lake District) announced on Friday, the all-clear was given in the district of Ludwigslust-Parchim in the south-west and on the Müritz. There the warning levels were lowered from four to two, and in the Jasnitz forestry office near Ludwigslust even to level one.

The risk of forest and field fires, with the second highest warning level four, remains more pronounced in southern Western Pomerania in the Torgelow forestry office, which includes the second largest island in Germany, Usedom. It also hardly rained in the Neubrandenburg, Northwest Mecklenburg and around Rostock regions, so that the second-highest warning level, four, continues to apply there.

At level three - medium fire risk - are now Vorpommern-Rügen, which had level two on Thursday, and the Güstrow region. On Thursday, there were several smaller field fires in dry weather and heat of up to 37 degrees, especially in the north-west. However, no one was injured and there was no major damage. A combine harvester caught fire near Dummerstorf, not far from Rostock. Here the driver was able to extinguish the fire before major damage occurred, as a police spokesman said.
