sunny easter weekend broke several grass and forest fires around the country. Mainly affected the southern parts of Sweden, but also in Kramfors and in Gävle has less forest fires raged over the weekend.
Several of the fires could be extinguished, but even on Tuesday plummeted to the fires including Tjällmo, in Motalatrakten, in Ingershult north of Traryd, Småland, Gislaved and the already mentioned fire in Hästveda, Hässleholm.
the Worst affected so far is the south of Sweden. But the risk of grass and forest fires is high throughout the middle of Sweden and large parts of the island. SMHI considers, furthermore, that the risk of proliferation is imminent in the coming days – because of the drought, but also because of the prevailing winds.
this summer's fires have done to the MSB also expanded the number of deployed so-called skogsdepåer. Previously, there were 15 depots, in day there are 24. In these depots, there are three mile fire hose, motorsprutor and pumps as well as the quads to be able to move around in the terrain to put out the fire. The depots are placed at ”appropriate locations”, as the MSB puts it.
the MSB is now calling on the public to be extra vigilant and to act cautiously. In an app for mobile phones called ”Fire out”, you can follow where the risks are greatest. The public is also invited to observe the local eldningsförbud that is, as in, for example, Jönköpings län, Östergötland, Blekinge and central Skaraborg.
