Saxony: Little hope of rain: the situation in the fire area remains serious

Bad Schandau (dpa / sn) - The situation in the forest fire area National Park Saxon Switzerland remains tense, also because the weather is not playing along. "The heat is a big burden for the firefighters, and the rain is also rather unfavorable," said Yamina Benamara from the Saxon Switzerland-Eastern Ore Mountains district office on Friday on request. The embers in the ground are still the biggest problem. There were always small fires, but they were quickly extinguished.

On Friday, like the day before, around 600 firefighters and twelve firefighting helicopters were in action. The operational area still covers an area of ​​around 150 hectares - this corresponds to the size of around 210 soccer fields.

Meanwhile, there is little hope of a more favorable weather situation. "The temperatures in the fire area remain close to 30 degrees until the afternoon and a cold front only approaches at night," said Thomas Hain from the German Weather Service (DWD) on Friday. On Saturday night there will be isolated showers with small amounts of rain and even thunderstorms. "But it would be a coincidence that these hit exactly the source of the fire." According to the DWD, no rain is expected for the entire coming week, but the maximum temperatures will drop to a more bearable 25 degrees.

The fire broke out in the Bohemian Switzerland National Park and then spread to the Saxon Switzerland National Park. On the Czech side, according to the local authorities, the fire is under control.
