Fire alarm raised in Old City of Dubrovnik – false alarm

By  Jan 29, 2020

This morning at around 9:00 am there was an intervention by firefighters in the historic core of Dubrovnik as smoke was spotted drifting between ancient buildings in a residential area. After spotting a large amount of smoke spreading around on the surveillance cameras, they headed to the scene and found a person burning weeds in their garden.

Clearly when the fire-brigade spotted the large and thick smoke rising from the Old City they suspected the worse and were quickly on the scene. Luckily it was a false alarm, but again it shows that such activities inside the Old City will soon attract the attention of firefighters and indeed citizens.
