Drought increases fire risk throughout MV

It was only at the beginning of May that the forest offices in Jasnitz, Mirow and Neubrandenburg declared forest fire warning level 3 of 5 for parts of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania due to the drought of the past few months. This corresponds to a medium risk. It’s relatively late now in May, said one of the forest fire managers at the Mirow headquarters in an interview with NDR 1 Radio MV. In some years, the risk of forest fires was already significantly higher in March.

Further information

Signs in the forest indicate the current forest fire danger level.

The drought of the past few weeks has increased the risk. That is rather late in the year, as they say.
