2023-05-30 05:56:13

PMore than 170 hectares of vegetation have already gone up in smoke following the fire that has been raging in the Fens since Monday evening.

One hundred and thirty firefighters were still mobilized on Tuesday morning to fight the flames on the Belgian-German border. The Belgian firefighters are helped by their German colleagues but also by the Civil Protection.

Access to the area concerned is particularly complicated, which makes the task of the firemen difficult. “During the night, the flames progressed but are contained in an area which had been determined by the emergency services”, explains, this Tuesday morning, Francis Cloth, the commander of the emergency zone of the German-speaking Community.

A helicopter may be needed to reach the hardest-to-reach homes by land.
