Forest fires in Konavle – two firefighting planes in action

By  Oct 21, 2017

orest fires are raging in Konavle, south of Dubrovnik, and two special firefighting planes have been called in to help. Around 60 firefighters are believed to be on the ground controlling the blaze that started at 11.00 o’clock this morning between the villages of Gabriel and Uskople.

The fire spread to the east and as the terrain is difficult to navigate it managed to spread up the hills and has proved difficult to bring under control. No residences are at threat at the moment, however a thick pine forest has been burning throwing a huge acrid column of smoke in the air.
