Five times more forest fires have been registered so far this year in comparison to the same period of last year.

Forest fires increase five-fold

 

Up until 5 May the National Civil Protection Authority had taken count of 4,320 forest fires, whereas last year just 846 fires had occurred during that same time frame.


According to the ANPC the majority of fires have been small due to the swift intervention of fire-fighters.


Up until now, this year only two fires spread beyond 500 hectares.
