Heat and drought increase the risk of fire. Prague forbade the distribution of fire on Sunday – Novinky.cz



"As a result of drought, there is a risk of fire and consequent damage, or even life threat," said the Czech Hydro Meteorological Institute (CHMI).

People should not distribute fire in nature, do not fire grass, do not throw crowds on the ground, and should not use portable cookers and other sources of open flames.

With regard to this warning, the City Hall in Prague issued a Sunday ban on the allocation of fire in forests, parks and gardens. The ban applies to smoking and pyrotechnics. You can find details on the city website here.

In addition to a fire hazard warning, a high-temperature warning is also in effect. This is true for the whole territory of the Czech Republic, with increased risk, especially in the Czech Republic and South Moravia.
