Smoke filled air in Dubrovnik Smoke filled air in Dubrovnik

Thick smoke hangs in the morning air over Dubrovnik

By  Aug 31, 2017

The whole wider region of Dubrovnik awoke this morning to a thick blanket of smoke hanging in the air. Quite clearly a huge forest fire had been burning for some time and dumping this acrid smoke all over Dubrovnik.

However the cause of the smoke wasn’t due to a forest fire in Dubrovnik, or even in Croatia, but a fire in neighbouring Bosnia and Herzegovina. According to the emergency services, who presumably received a number of calls from worried citizens this morning, the fire is in Bosnia and Herzegovina and quite some way from the Croatian border and that at this present time there is no danger that the fire will cross the border.
