Large fire on Baba mountain

Several hectares of pine wood and juniper bush are on fire that broke out late Tuesday on Baba mountain, near the Strezevo channel, at the Meolica locality.

As reported by Makfax correspondent, because of the inaccessible terrain, the operation is carried out by teams of Macedonian Forestry public enterprise - Kajmakcalan branch in Bitola, as well as Fire Department.

Macedonian Forestry enterprise hopes that low temperatures and snow cover would help in localizing the fire and stop it from spreading onto the opposite side of Baba mountain, near the tourist project Nize Pole.
