A raging forest fire is currently burning in the hills of Konavle. Thick smoke fills the air of the Konavle region, just south of Dubrovnik as pine trees and undergrowth burns.
The Konvale Fire Brigade is on the scene but as the fire broke out half way up the mountain side it will prove difficult to fight. So far the cause of the fire is unknown.
The fire is to the west of the popular tourist attraction Sokol Grad in a fairly uninhabited part of Konvale. According to the latest information the fire is under control and is almost extinguished.
